is a hill temple built on the Yamunachala, one of the slopes of Bala ghat, an
integral part of the Sahyadri. As it lies on the deep slope, the visitors have
to descend to reach the Mother's feet from the Mahadwara, lying at a higher
level. Does not this descent signify that however great one may be, he has to
step down from his pedestal and reach her feet with humility? What is man after
all before the powers infinitude of that Universal Mother, the cause of cosmos
and ruler of the worlds? After a descent of about 15 feet, the visitor finds a
big tank called Kollola thirtha. It has an awe-some story.
