A Holy Snake and its divine power:

Holy Stones with Snake arts

It is said that a godly snake lives in the temple premises and guards the Shree Kshetra (Holy Place of Hindus). This snake swims in tank water from Haalu Malleshwara temple to Shree Vaidyanatheshwara Swamy temple during night times. I stays sometime in the temple and then returns. Many people have seen this snake appears big which sometimes opens its head by encircling the Jyothirlinga. At other times the snake looks like an ordinary one.

If archaka, (Priest) who performs pooja, comes to temple without requisite cleanliness, the serpent lies across inside of main entrance, preventing from entering the temple. At that time the archaka goes back, takes bath, comes to the main entrance of temples and performs worship when the door is opened, the serpent would not be seen.

 

A true incident:

When one recalls an incident that occurred at the time of renovation of Shree Vaidyanatheshwara temple during 1986, it becomes clear that god Shree Vaidyanatheshwara Swamy would get the temple services done through devotees. Sri. Gurubasappa, a devotee, on his own was involving in renovation work of the temple. Sri. Shankarappa of Karadagere Village, a retired Assistant Director (Agriculture), was cooperating and helping in this work. Due to difference of opinion between village people, Sri. Gurubasappa said that he will not continue renovation work of temple and went to his village. Next morning, the archaka found that a serpent was sleeping across the main entrance to the temple. When the archaka told this to the village, they came to temple and tried to make the serpent move away. They also give milk, the serpent drunk the milk and did not move. This situation continued for three days. Sri. Gurubasappa then realized that this situation is created because of his refusal to involve in renovation work of the temple. Then he offered pooja and pledged that he will take part and complete the renovation work. The serpent showed movement and disappeared before hundreds of people.
