PHEDE - PARASURAM TEMPLE  

Let us witness the miracle now. Many of the places in Maharashtra are associated with Parasurama. Though his birth, education, exploits, conquests took place in this region, he is not so popular, say ardently adored as the other deities like Vithoba, Khandoba, Bhavani etc. May be due to his settlement after giving the conquered land to Kashyap. 

Yet there is one temple exclusively dedicated to him. And strangely enough it was built by a Muslim woman in token of her gratitude for the benefit received. Sounds odd, isn't it? Nay it is quite in consonance with his odd character. Wasn't he catholic in his religious outlook? Did he ever distinguish one from another?
