|Goddess Adishakthi of Bettanakurike Gollarahatti, Tumkur |
|oil lamp made of clay|
Next day morning everyone was shocked at the sight. The place where idol was hidden had a termite mound grown over it. Quickly they removed the idol from that place and took it for worshiping. They had made a temporary place to keep the idol for worship. Coconut leaf roof covered the top. Suddenly a few policemen came to the place. They were not able to say anything but stood very quiet before the goddess idol. They just prayed to the goddess and left. The Superintendent of Police who came there had something hidden in his mind. He wanted someone to stop his transfer which would take place the very next day. As he prayed to the goddess he pleaded her to fulfill his wish. And if the wish got fulfilled, then he would stand there and work as a volunteer. He was overjoyed to know that his prayers were heard and wish was fulfilled. From that day onwards he became one of the voluntary members to work before the goddess. Villagers built a temple for the goddess Adishakthi.
