Mulasthaneswara Swamy Temple Mulapet Nellore

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 cow 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 a ant-hill. In a bit anger he raised his axe to beat the cow, cow escaped from the bite and it hit rock in the ant-hill from where the blood starts oozing out.  
Cowherd in fear ran to his master and updated 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'
