Sri Savaramma Devi Temple
The temple of " Sri Savaramma Devi " that we see today is situated in the ward of " KHB Surya City Phase - 2, Naganayakanahalli, Kasaba Hobli, Anekal, Bangalore Urban - 562106. According to these writings, a " Shakthi Peetha " is a place associated with " Sri Shakthi ", the goddess of power.
The " Sri Savaramma Devi Kshethra " is of special religious significance where it is believed that one can either obtain salvation from desires or have them fulfilled.
According to " Suvarna Aroodha Prashna " (Deva Prashnam) & public knowledge, approximately more than 300 years ago the goddess Devi who is powerful and in seva of elderly goddess's, protecting & blessing all people according to their earnest hope & wish.
As " Sri Shakthi " is pure, intelligent and powerful, was on " SAVARI " (Convoy) from somewhere towards southern India reached the above Kshethra.
The area in which the temple is situated now was once a dense forest that was believed to be infested by " Yakshis " & " Rakshasas ". A tribe woman who used to live in this forest, was a devout worshipper of " Sri Shakthi " & meditated for several days for goddess to stay in this auspicious place to protect people living in this area.
After a lot of persuasion, the goddess agreed to stay in a Banyan tree (Vatavruksha). Even today goddess gives darshana to many devotees as a " Naga Sarpa " in and around of the same tree.
As per " Deva Prashnam "; The devi is tall, red in colour, has lengthy nose, holding fire (Panju) in two hands, sword & Trishula in other two hands.
" Sri Shakthi " stayed as " VanaDevathe " in Banyan tree (Vatavruksha), the people surrounded near the " Kshethra " started worshipping Devi as an ancient practice.
Several years later, a king who was defeated in a war came to this " Kshethra " to hide himself from enemies & to get heal from the war wounds. During that time, he saw a group of convoy with " Panju " (Fire) and goddess " Sri Shakthi ". As he saw the goddess with " SAVARI " (Convoy) on commute, he started screaming the goddess as " Sri Savaramma Devi " & started chanting Devi in the same name for a win towards humanity & save his kingdom from enemies.
King took " Mruthika Snanam " (Mud Bath) under the spiritual tree as per Devi's instruction to get heal from his wounds. Later, king returned after his win to the
" Kshethra " and started meditating in the name of " Sri Savaramma Devi " to bless his " Samsthana " (Kingdom), people & animals for good rain and crops. He lived for several years as a saint till his last breath under the spiritual tree. As per elders and astrologers, his soul (" Aatma ") is still worshipping the goddess & few people has seen him in different forms.
Even today during " Navarathri " festival, war rituals are performed in the memories of king & to please " Sri Savaramma Devi " with " Chandika Homa " all nine days. Traditionally elders say goddess gives " Darshana " even today in the form of flame of performed " Chandika Homa ". From then, farmers & people surrounded to the " Sri Kshethra " started worshipping the goddess as " Sri Savaramma Devi " as per their knowledge. Also villagers started offering " Gudanna Neyvedya " (Red Raw Rice, Jaguary) as special prasada preparing from " Kshethra's " " Suddukunte " water along with Bali Pooja as per those days' tradition.
" Suddukunte ":- Known for white mud in the pond.
Based on this history Devi is also known as " Ishtartha Siddhi Suddukunte Sri Savaramma Devi ".
Farmers & villagers in surrounding " Kshethra " has seen goddess with " SAVARI " (Convoy) " Panju " (Fire) & as per elders, goddess commute every day to her sister " Mahabali Ammanavaru " (Maha Kali) near " Kengunte " (KempuKunte).
This place is also known as " Mooru Marada Dinne " (Three Trees Grove) as along with this spiritual tree, couple more Banyan trees were also surrounded. Later on those two trees were fallen down due to environmental disaster.
Later on, unexpectedly a farmer couple named as Sri. M. Narayanappa (S/o Late. Muniyamma & Muniswamappa) & Smt. A. Kalamma from Indalwadi village moved permanently to Naganayakanahalli as per their elders wish. To their livelihood, couple started looking for a farming land and ended up purchasing the " Kshethra " property in 1973-74 which was not at all suitable for cultivation. Sri. M Narayanappa & Smt. Kalamma's hard work converted this land as suitable farm land.
Sri. Narayanappa & Smt. Kalamma realized the spiritual tree's power and Devi's existence, they built a small mantapam under the tree and started offering poojas as per their strength. As Sri. Narayanappa & Smt. Kalamma were a devout worshipper of Sri. Chowdeshwari Devi & was worshipping Devi at their house. Later, they decided to build Sri. Chowdeshwari Temple for public welfare and blessings. Unfortunately, they didn't got support from villagers and suitable place for temple construction and
decided to build the temple in their own land which is the same spiritual Kshethra. With lots of difficulties they built a desirable temple for Sri Chowdeshwari Devi and all the Poojas, Bhajans, Abhishekas, Annadana, Amavasya/Purnima special Pooja's & Free Marriages were continued till date.
The most powerful goddess Kshethra Devathe " Sri Savaramma Devi " came in dream of Sri. N. Radhakrishna (youngest son of Smt. Kalamma & Sri. M Narayanappa) when he was at the age of 10 years & instructed to build a small temple (Peetam), which was not taken seriously in childhood. As years pass by the whole family started getting instructions from goddess to build a temple. Later family decided to contact " Daivajna " (Spiritualist) to examine through " Suvarna Aroodha Prashna " (Deva Prashna). As per the instructions, a small " Peetam " has to be built for " Sri Savaramma Devi " for which Sri. N. Radhakrishna stood forward to construct a holy " Peetam " for Devi. However, Devi's intention was much bigger than the assumption. Sri. N Radhakrishna started to build a " Peetam " and later changed his mind to build an ancient style stone carving temple with modern infrastructure. It took almost 7.5 years to finish the temple construction work with experienced skilled sculptures team. After the temple completion, the family & devotees was in state of shock to see such a beautiful temple which was out of their imagination.
