 Greatness Of Temple:

Due to his righteous life in his previous birth, Kubeara was born the son of Arundaman and became the king Alakapuri.  Shukra, the Guru of demons grew jealous of him and began to create troubles.  Kubera worshipped Lord Shiva seeking protection from Shukra.  Lord swallowed Shukra and destroyed his pride.  Shivalinga in the temple is big in size.  As Mother Kanchi Kamakshi is the consort of Lord Shiva, there is no separate Ambica shrine in this temple.  Installed by Lord Vinayaka, Lord Shiva is praised in the name of Anekadhangavdha Easwarar.  Lord Vinayaka also is known as Anekadhangavadhar.

  Temple History:

Maharshi Mareechi, while bathing in a lotus tank, found a female child on the leaves.  He took the child and brought her up.  He named her Vallaba.  She was a staunch Shiva devotee.  She was abducted by demon Kesi.  She prayed to Lord Shiva to come to her rescue.  Lord Shiva wanted to send Vinayaka to protect her.  Ambica requested Lord to bless Vinayaka with victory in the war against the demon.  Lord said that He would be victorious if he worships in this land.  Lord Vinayaka followed the advice and installed the Linga.  Demon was destroyed and Vallaba rescued. Lord Shiva and Mother performed the wedding of Vinayaka with Vallaba here.
