One day Srimannarayana Swamy was on Seshathalpam and Sri Mahalakshmi at his feet on PalaSamudram. He said to her in the event that if you have any personality at the top of the priority list, let me know, I will do it for you. She said with a grin I got you as a spouse, that is extraordinary for my life, yet now there are less number of Divya Kshetras on earth so the lovers can’t go there on account of costs. The God acknowledged Mahalakshmi. He said to Vanamala to make a great Parvata(Hill) on earth so that Vanamala has changed as Malyadri.
