There are many interesting myths associated to this temple.  The two demons Madhu and Kaitaba confiscated the Vedas and put a sudden halt to the ‘Creation’.  Lord Brahma and all the deities prayed Lord Vishnu to protect the Vedas. Lord Vishnu beheaded the demons and reinstated the sacred scriptures and Vedas.   Lord Brahma underwent severe austerities and worshipped Lord Vishnu on this sacred land.  In this way, Lord Brahma revealed his gratitude to Lord Vishnu for his compassion.  The most pleased Lord appeared as Lord Vamana before Lord Brahma and blessed him.

Another legend has that Arjuna was devastated at the death of Karna (step brother).  During the fierce battle between Pandava and Kauravas at Kurukshetra, Arjuna brutally killed Karna while his chariot wedged on the muddy ground and he was trying hard to fix it.  Arjuna felt ashamed of his deceitful act, he arrived on this sacred land and underwent severe austerities praying to Lord Vishnu.

This temple remains open from 5.00AM to 11.00AM in the morning and 5.00PM to 8.00PM in the evenings.

Jai Sriman Narayana !!
