History of the Temple
Amid the reign of Tipu, the Mysore Family was still in Srirangapatana. Queen Lakshmammanni, spouse of Krishnaraja Wodeyar 2 was profoundly agonized over the Dynasty and its future. At that point Lord Venkataramana is said to have showed up in her fantasy, and guided her that his statue which is in balamuri ought to be sanctified in Mysore. By this devout demonstration, her Dynasty would get Salvation.
She hence, continued to Balamuri without the learning of the sultan and brought the picture of Venkataramana, sanctified it in the sanctuary, and worshipped persistently. This is said to have helped the family and after the fall of Tipu, the Kingdom was re-established to the Wodeyar Dynasty.
