In the 10th century, King Rajendravarman II ruled Yashodharpura. He gave away a huge piece of land to his 2 ministers who established a town named ‘Ishwarpur’ there. It is now known as Phnom Dei village, Cambodia. In the center of the town they built a temple ‘Tribhuvan Maheshwar’ or ‘Banteay Srei’.
‘Shiv-Kanchi’ and ‘Vishnu-Kanchi’ are the two twin Mokshapuris. Shrivishnu temple at ‘Vishnu-Kanchi’ is one of the 108 divine places of Shrivishnu and it is called as Shri Varadraj Perumal Mandir. This temple has a huge importance in Hindu Dharma. The ancient idol of Varadraj Shri Vishnu is taken out of the pond, after every 40 years, so that devotees can have darshan of it.
Saptarshi said further, “Chandi-Chamunda’ Devi’s idols are on a mountain in Chotila village. Though we see two Devi forms here, they are one from within. Chandi and Chamunda are the forms of Adishakti. The two spiritual successors of Paratpar Guru Dr. Athavale, Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil are forms of Devi Chandi and Chamunda.
