A Nandi icon at the Umamaheswara sanctuary in Yaganti in Kurnool is developing. It’s presently an all out vacation spot. Sources likewise include that the Kalagnanam by the Saint Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swamy claims Yagan-ti Basavanna will wake up and yell when Kali Yuga closes. This excessively has raised open intrigue.
The Basavanna symbol throughout the most recent century has evidently been developing ceaselessly. Local people say the symbol, arranged alongside a column, was at first significantly littler. Previous Pathapadu sarpanch Chandrasekhar Reddy, whose family has been normal lovers for a considerable length of time, stated, “There was a space to do pradakshinas (rounds) around Basavanna a century prior, yet now it has taken up the hole between the stone column.”
Analyses on the icon uncovered that the stone really has a few properties that influences it to develop. Authorities from the Archeological Survey of India have affirmed that the icon expands its size by an inch like clockwork. The division gathers information alongside the measure of the icons at regular intervals.
Mines and Geology office collaborator chief C. Mohan Rao from Elur said that stones develop because of synthetic responses. “The stone has silica substances and iron particles. At the point when a mineral is changed over to different granules of Silica, it grows.”
The current size of Basavanna symbol is around five feet high and 15 feet wide. It looks like the measurements of the huge Nandi of Lepakshi. Mr Balireddy (65) of Meerapalli saw that there was clear sign in the Kalagnanam of Veerabrahmendra Swamy, who had put in a couple of years to compose the Kalagnanam at Yaganti, about the development of Nandi.
Indeed, this sanctuary was developed by King Harihara Bukka Raya of the Sangama Dynasty of the Vijayanagara realm in the fifteenth century.
As per Stala Puranam, the sage Agastya needed to assemble a sanctuary for Lord Venkateswara on this site.
In any case, the statue that was made couldn’t be introduced as the toe nail of the icon was broken and there was a sure disfiguration. The sage was disturbed about the harm and played out a repentance for Lord Shiva, who at that point showed up as Uma Maheswara cut from a solitary stone.
Another element of the sanctuary is crows appear to avoid the Yaganti territory.
“Since legend has it that when Agastya was playing out his retribution, crows frequently exasperates him compelling him to put a revile on the winged animals, which prevented them from entering the site,” asserted sanctuary official Sreenivasulu.
