VIKARABAD - ANANTHA PADMANABHA SWAMY TEMPLE
A MUSLIM KING

The glory of this holy kshetra began with Markandeya maharshi and was heightened later by a Muslim king with the building of a temple for Anantha padmanabhaswamy. The present shrine owes its existence to a devout village chief, who when directed in dream by the presiding deity erected a merest sized temple. Its past is elaborately described in Skanda and Vishnu Puranas. According to legends, when Markandaya prayed to Brahma for showing him a suitable place for penance, Brahma directed him to this place and after Bhagavat Sakshatkaara, Markandeya dwelt here for long, installing the Vaudeva salagram in a decency built temple. During then he pleased Mother Ganga with his earnest prayers and made her present in the tank, he materialized with his soul power. And moreover, she promised to visit every year once to this temple Pushkarini through underground passage. This, no doubt enhanced the glory of this kshetra. After his demise this was completely obscured due to sumptuous growth of forests, and the salagram disappeared. But during the reign of a certain Nizam Nawab, he was cured of his ailment on drinking the water of the pond by the grace of salagram hidden in a tank. He built a temple as directed in the dream.
