Legends and Stories

As per the legend, God Narayana once transformed himself into a man called Srinivasa to come on earth. He stayed on the banks of the river Tambrabarani. All the Mahapurushas and Siddhas came to know about his arrival and among these Mahatama there was a Sanyasi who felt fear as well as doubt about his future. When the God’s human life came to an end, it was time for his departure to the Vaikunta. The Sanyasi began praying to save the God and stop him from going. God Narayana then told the Sanyasi to construct a temple dedicated to him. That is when this temple was built so that God Narayana can protect and bless the devotees.
