A huge devotee of Lord Shiva, she believed that the Lord had sent his serpent to save her. The Nawab, repenting his mistake, decided to build a temple for Lord Shiva honouring the women's devotion.

For most Hindus, praying at temples far and near, is not just for a fleeting sense of gratification but an eternal drive of their devotional self. We worship the divine presence in our idols and the reverberating essence of holiness in our temples.
