Americaed to be} really surprised and stunned once the priest United Nations agency was activity the abhishekam (pooja) invited us within the Garbha Gudi (sanctum sanctorum). The rationale is that the temples within the south don’t enable the ladies within the Garbha Gudi. The priest was activity the pooja on one hand and on the opposite he was showing and explaining the history of this temple.
“Ryali” in Telugu means that falling. In step with the legend “Bhagavatam” the Devatas and Rakshas were quarrelling over sharing of holy Devine nectar.Seeing this, “Sri Maha Vishnu” came to the rescue of Devatas within the pretense of Mohini (a stunning woman) and convinced each the competition teams promising to distribute holy Devine nectar in equal share to Devatas and Rakshas. However within the interest of universal peace the Devine nectar was distributed among Devatas alone and once that Mohini disappeared. Lord Shiva happened to check the fascinating fantastic thing about Mohini. He hunted person her for obtaining for a short time within the presence of his consort Parvathi Devi. As he was chasing her, flower from the plait of Mohini fell down and was smelt by Lord Shiva. He amazingly found “Sree Maha Vishnu” within the type of Mohini and felt back for his behavior.
