|The miraculous turn of
A devotee and tree lover, came there one day with a banyan tree
sapling searching around for a suitable place to plant it. At
last he selected a place which normally one would hesitate to
choose as it was very near a coconut tree and close to the edge
of a footpath. He dug the place for taking a pit when the spade
stuck a stone. As the stone was cleared, an adjacent stone was
uncovered, both forming part of a circular row of stones - the
edge of a well! With this discovery, people began clearing the
well and by the evening, as the auspicious conch sounded at dusk,
a heavy idol was unearthed from the well . It was an idol of great
beauty - a chathur bahu idol of Lord Mahavishnu !
The recovered ancient idol was installed in the temporary shrine.
Further Prasna revelation said that as the idol was in a partly
broken condition, its spiritual power should be withdrawn and
transferred to a new idol which should be finally installed in
a new shrine.
