Religious Significance

Kasyapa Prajapathi, son of Marichi, decided to perform a Yagna and started searching for the place in southern part of India. In search of the place he reached Rajathagiri which is located north to Penna river and decided to perform yagna here. Kasyapa installed three Yagna Gundam, which are namely, Daskhanagni, Aahananiyagni, Aaraspathyagni to perform Yagna. Lord siva was very much pleased with Kasyapa’s Yagna and emerged out of Yagna gundam in a Linga shape.

Goddess Parvathi then reached Jonnavada in search of Lord Siva, Lord Siva requested Goddess to stay here at this place. On his request Goddess manifested herself in the idol form and started residing in the penna river. Later fishermen installed the idol on the banks of Penna river and started offering prayers, which caught in their fishing net.

Mahamuni Kasyapa Brahma in Tretayuga performed yagna to please Lord Mallikarjuna and hence it is called as Yagnavatika Jonnawada. Sri Mallikarujua Swammy & Kamakshi amma give to the several devotees their wishes, as their godhead, since that time, he has been conferring boons & its blessings on the devotees. Kamkshi is known to be a rebirth of Shakti. Brama Rusi Shri Kasyap Mahamuni had come to earth also known as Bhoolokam to conduct Yagna & chose the place of North vedadri to be the yagna vatika. When he completed his yagna, an illuminated light appeared which illuminated the whole of the earth. Later on it was realized that it was God Mallikarjuna who emerged from the flames of yagna.

History

During the 8th century, Aadi Sankaracharya on his way to Kailasagiri (one of the mountains of Himalayas) found that this idol is the manifestation of the Goddess Parvathi and installed the idol along with Lord Siva in the temple.
