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 Parasuram 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 Parasuram in dream that he was abiding in that spot. The cow-herds
story lent support to the divinity of the place. Popular enthusiasm gained
momentum and religioicity took definite shape. A stone was worshipped regularly
and it went by the name of Svayambhu. The adorers found their desires fulfilled
to their satisfaction. The kshetra became glorious and the deity powerful.
