The beauty of the place held them back forever and made them reside here. While the three Maatrukes i.e. Maheshwari, Vyshnavi and Kaumari choose to reside in three anthills based inside the temple, the other three choose to reside in three wells in Devigere Honda. It has been believed that Amma Hasanamba has turned the mother-in-law of one of her devotees into stone for torturing devotee.
