History of Sangameswara Temple

According to Krutha Yuga, there was a King Raja Kupendra from Surya Vamsham. He had skin disease for which there was no remedy.

Once the king went to the forest for hunting, where he found Ketaki Vanam. There he found a stream washed his body. Surprisingly the skin disease was the cure. On the same night, the king had a dream in which Lord Shiva instructed him to build a temple.

The king built the temple, and the stream is Pushkarini consisting of 8 theerthas or “Astha Theertha Amrutha Gundam.” The Pushkarini is known as Dakshina Kasi.
