  BHAGAWAN PARASURAM OF PHEDE

HISTORICITY

Though its distant past cannot be fixed with certainty, the miracles that occurred and circulated among the devotees can be narrated and they are many too. In the dim past it appears, a certain cow used to stand at the exact spot where the present image of Lord Parasurama is installed, and empty its udder - let the milk flow down automatically. This continued for long. The cow herds were amazed and spread the news with unusual fervour. Just at this period, one devotee was informed by Parasurama in dream that he was abiding in that spot. The cowherd's story lent support to the divinity of the place. Popular enthusiasm gained momentum and religiosity took definite shape. A stone was worshipped regularly and it went by the name of Swayambhu. The adorers found their desires fulfilled to their satisfaction. The kshetra became glorious and the deity powerful. Later the Muslim Princess constructed the temple with which its flag started fluttering and bringing in large number of devotees. In the year 1779, one by name Parachura, from Guhaswar installed the images which are being now worshipped. Historical records bear ample evidence through sanads and inscriptions that many peshwas endowed it lavishly. Chatrapati Sivaji visited it and made grants for regular worship.
