about papanashini

The story of how Papanashini gained its cleansing powers is linked to the mythical Churning of the Celestial Ocean episode. As Brahma was consecrating Vishnu’s idol at Thirunelly, Garuda was escaping with the amrita kumbha (pot of nectar). It is said that drops of amrita fell at Ujjain, Haridwar, Prayag and Nashik, sanctifying them as venues for the Kumbha Mela. After a reckless flight, Garuda came to Thirunelly just in time for the installation of his master’s idol. He circled above thrice and a drop of amrita fell into the stream, endowing it with amazing purifying powers.
