Mopidevi Temple Timings: Today, Open, Close, and Darshan

Mopidevi Temple Timings, Pooja details, and Ticket cost

The holy scriptures state that Vindhya Mountain once grew upwards due to an overconfidence in its strength. Up to the sun, it went. This caused complete darkness to descend upon the world, covering all living things—including plants and animals—mortal and immortal. The gods requested Sage Agasthya to bring down the Vindhya Mountain in some way. It is well known that Sage Agasthya obtained celestial powers through intense penance. At that point, he was residing in Varanasi. After agreeing to the Devas’ request, Sage Agasthya left Northern India and headed towards the Vindhya mountain. The border separating North and South India is Vidhya Mountain. The Vindhya Mountain descended to the lowest position to make room for Sage Agasthya, whom he knew was coming. Sage Agasthya has promised Vindhyaa that he will remain small till he returns from his tour of southern India, having taken this vow when crossing the Vindhya Mountain. Still, the sage did not come back. He made his home in southern India. Vidhya Mountain waited for ages in harmony and was humbled to this day.

Sage Agasthya once had the opportunity to visit the location where Lord Subrahmanyeswara performed intense penance with his attendants. He pointed to the location and added that there were tigers there, and if we continued eastward from here, we would reach the sacred Subrahmanyeswara temple of Lord Kumaraswamy. One can achieve atonement and gain wealth throughout their life by paying a sincere visit to this shrine. It is important to remember that Vijayawada’s ruling goddess, Kanaka Durga, rides a tiger.
The son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi is Lord Subrahmanyeswara. Goddess Parvathi transferred the fetus’s power to Ganga Devi, who was unable to resist it while Lord Subrahmanyeswara was still inside her womb. The fetus sank into the reed grass because Ganga was unable to withstand its strength either. Krittika, six female minor goddesses, looked after the embryo. With six heads, twelve hands, and a lot of brilliance, luster, and sun radiance, Lord Subrahmanyeswara was born in the month of Margasira masam on the day of the rising moon, inheriting the strengths of both Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. On the occasions of Ashada Sukla Panchami, Naga Panchami, Nagaula Chaviti, and Shashti, devotees especially adore Lord Subrahmanyeswara.
