VIJAYAWADA

Kousiki waiting for an opportunity sent the ambassador with the news that she would wed, if only they win the battle with her. Unwilling to fight, they sent their army commanders along Raktabija, Dumralochana and Chanda Munda to bring her to their presence using muscle force. Alas! all were made to bite the dust--killed with utmost ease. Wasn't she the incarnation of the all powerful Sati? Enraged at this, the brothers entered the war theatre only to be routed out and out. The entire ashram region reverberated with sounds of victory heard to them first, and to the Mata next. She then blessed them with Kanakavarsha and made their lives live-worthly with peace regining to its full and eternity. As the region glittered by the gold fallen, it was called Kanakawada and the greatful sages called her Kanakadurga and worshipped her with due rituals and ardour unique. Because of the victory over asuras, this place was also called Vijayapuri.
