About Sri Subrahmanyeswara Swamy Temple

According to holy texts, Vindhya Mountain, at one time became overconfident of its strength and began to grow upwards. It went up to the planet Ravi. With this, darkness surmounted all over and all mortals and immortals including every flora and fauna suffered in darkness.Gods prayed to Sage Agasthya to somehow humble the Vindhya Mountain. Sage Agasthya is known to have attained divine powers through severe penance. He was staying in Varanasi at that time.

He, accepted the request of Devas, Sage Agasthya started towards the mountain Vindhya from Northern India. Vidhya Mountain is the border between North India and South India. Knowing in advance about the arrival of Sage Agasthya, the Vindhya Mountain humbled himself to the lowest level so as to give way to the sage.

While crossing the Vindhya Mountain, Sage Agasthya has taken a promise from Vindhyaa to be in a humbled state till he returns from his tour of Southern India. But the sage did not return. He settled in South India. Waiting for ages together, Vidhya Mountain remained humbled even today.Sage Agasthya along with his retinue had the occasion to pass through the place, where Lord Subrahmanyeswara did severe penance. He identified the place and said that this area is covered by Tigers and from here if we go towards the Eastern direction, one can find the divine temple of Lord Kumaraswamy known as Subrahmanyeswara.

The presiding deity of Vijayawada Kanaka Durga rides on Tiger. Lord Subrahmanyeswara is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. While Lord Subrahmanyeswara was in her womb, Goddess Parvathi could not bear the power of the fetus and hence transferred the same to Ganga Devi. Ganga also could not bear the power of the fetus and hence the fetus slipped into the reed grass.

Six female minor deities called Krittika took care of the embryo. Imbibing the strengths of both Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi, Lord Subrahmanyeswara was born in the month of Margasiramasam on Shashti day of waxing Moon with six heads, twelve hands, a lot of brilliance, luster, and the radiance of Sun. Devotees especially worship Lord Subrahmanyeswara on the days of Ashada Sukla Panchami, Naga Panchami, Nagaula Chaviti, and Shashti.
