INTRODUCTION

Emergence of this sacred land has a fascinating back-ground - it owes its origin to the irrepressible virtuous indignation of that indomitable Sage Bhargavarama, who created it at the instance of victims of Ratnakara - the Arabian sea. The legend says - once the sea advanced all on a sudden and submerged the entire region called then by the name of Jnanaranya - a favorite retreat of sages and saint-seers. The afflicted approached Parasurama, absorbed then in performing a great yagna to expiate the sin of stamping out Kshatria race. Moved by their pathetic wails, he bade the Sea-god to retreat, lest he would release Agneyastra. The terrified Sea-god meekly agreed to recede to the extent of the land covered by his axe, when hurled into the sea.
