Tikkana Somayaji started Mahabharatha translation into Telugu only after offering prayers to the deity here. The legend goes this way, There was a cattle baron by name Mukanti Reddy, who used to gaze on the rich grass in the forest. One day Mukanti noticed that one of his cows is not yielding milk and instructed cowherd to keep an eye on this cow and find out why it is not giving milk. The cowherd kept an eye on the cow and followed it when it moved away from the others. Cowherd noticed that cow is emptying it's milk on an ant-hill. In a bit anger he raised his axe to beat the cow, the cow escaped from the cowherd's axe but it hit a rock in the ant-hill from where the blood starts oozing out. Cowherd in fear ran to his master and updated the same on this. Later in the night Mukanti had a dream, where it is instructed by natural spirits to build a temple for this Shiva Lingam. As instructed, Mukanti built the temple, Thus the place came to known as 'Mulasthana Ishwara'.
