Garuda Temple Koladevi History
According to purans, during the Mahabharata in Dwapara Yuga, the Pandava king Arjun went for hunting, due to the force of Arjuna’s arrow, the forest caught fire, and all kinds of snakes died in the forest. This leads to the Sarpa Dosha for Arjuna. When Arjuna met some great sages, they urged him to worship Garuda so that he could come out of the snake curse. That’s why after worshiping Garuda, Arjuna came out of Sarpadosh.
Come in the history of Koladevi, in Treta Yuga during Ramayana, Sri Lanka’s demon king ‘Ravana’ kidnaps ‘Sita’ and rescues Sita by carrying a bird named ‘Jatayu’ in his ‘Vimana’. Did.
