Narada advised the disconsolate to do
penance at a advice, where his valkala fell for reinstatement. They descended to
the present Varkala, where his garment fell and did penance. During then Brahma
came to this spot to conduct a yagna. Lord Janardhana, who visited to attend it,
blessed the gods doing penance. In token of redemption, the gods built a temple
and installed Janardhana's icon. The temple and its thirtha won fame on account
of many miracles - curing of diseases and solving of problems of the true Bhaktas.
Hills, where Narayan Guru, a great social reformer built the Sarada matt for
meditation and carrying on pious activities and the holy spring papanasam, the
famous health report are located very close to this and are additional
attraction for tourists and devotees. So visit - worthy.
