Adasa Sri Ganpati Temple History:
King Bali made up his mind to perform 100 yadnyas and good deeds enough to give him the position of Lord Indra. Through his immense dedication, he amassed a tremendous amount of strength. In order to destroy the fire sacrifices he had planned, the Vaman incarnation of Sri Vishnu worshiped Shami Vighneshwar. Later, with Shami Vighneshwar’s grace, Vaman destroyed the Bali fire sacrifice. After this incident, Vamana installed an idol of Ganesh in the name of Shami Vighnesh Vakratunda in this sacred region.
