Story Behind Shanmukha Subramanya Temple

Over 800 years ago, the Nanda kings of Nandavara suffered from Harpies skin disease. They tried many medications, but none worked. Finally, the king of Nandas sent a messenger throughout the village to find a Pandit who could relieve them of the disease. A Brahmin from Kunjarugiri came forward to perform a medicine for the king of Nandavara. After performing the medicine, the Brahmin said a Serpent would come and suck the toxin from the disease. If the Serpent dies, then they should build three Subramanya Temples in the area under their rule and perform worship services. The medication was successful, and a Serpent came and sucked the toxin from the disease but died in the place called Naganavalachill. As per the Brahmin’s words, the rulers of Nandavara built three Shanmukha Subramanya Temples in different places in their hometown and conducted worship rituals.

Renovation of the Temple

In 2017, the Sri Kshetra governing body and a group of devotees consulted Brahmashree Neeleshwara Ucchilattaya Padmanabha Thanthri, and under his guidance, they convened to consult the Architect Shri Krishna Prasad Muniyangala. They requested the Architect to prepare a blueprint of the temple, and according to the architecture (Vasthu), it was decided to renovate the Shrine into a new stone sculptured Temple.

Fundraising Campaign for Renovation

For the purpose of financial resource mobilization, the temple started a special project with the mission of “Alaya to Devalaya” (Home to Devalaya) and a fundraising campaign. A group of 48 people was formed, and like a modest 10 to 12 households, each one collected rupees 10 from each house, and a minimum collection of rupees 300/- per month was collected. Within one and a half years, the estimated collection was 20 lakhs.
