Temple History:
Lord Brahmma became proud of his profession of creating the world and the beings. Lord Shiva wanted to teach a lesson to him. At a stage, Brahmma could not continue his creation job. He realized his folly and begged Shiva’s pardon. He was advised by Lord Shiva to perform penance in Vanjivanam. Meantime, the creation job was entrusted to the divine cow Kamadenu.

Kamadenu created a hill of butter and also a spring with sweet water to protect all the beings from thirst and hunger. This is why, even today, the rocks of the hill is very pleasantly cool even during hot summer. Standing in the very place blesses the person with wisdom and liberation from evils. Lord Balasubramania is all graceful in the temple.
