PHEDE - PARASURAM TEMPLE  

The strangeness sprang up thus - once a Muslim princess belonging to Adilsahi's dynasty dispatched a flotilla of merchant ships with valuable cargo to far off Arab countries. Soon news came to her that powerful gales developed in the high seas all on a sudden. Its once onset being sudden and velocity incredible, it was feared that nothing would reach the destination safe - neither cargo nor persons in charge of it. Perturbed greatly, she sought the help of Lord Parasuram; for, she heard the story of Parasuram's cowing down the fury of the sea with his mighty bow. She made tearful appeals and offered soulful prayers taking a vow to erect a temple, if nothing untoward happened to the cargo and men. 

Her sincerity pleased Parasuram most, and by a wave of hand he subsided the fury of the sea. When the news of safe reaching of all, she felt extremely joyous and soon spent lakhs to build a decent temple in memory of his benignity that saved her treasure. Gradually, when the strength of adorers increased and receipt of Navas - donations enriched the temple coffers, expansion programme was undertaken with great fervour. The endowments of the princes and philanthropists too raised it to the level of a premier centre of pilgrimage in the state of Maharashtra. A little bit of history before and after the occurrence of the momentous event is quite expedient at this stage.
