A Shravaka observed a vow not to take meals before respectfully bowing his head to God. He went to a Godís temple in a village at a distance of five miles. Influenced by his vow and fidelity, the presiding deity gave him an indication in dream and ordered him to find this idol under a particular tree outside the villages. The presiding deity also instructed him to go to the said place with a basket full of barley grains and leave it there at night. All the barley grains turned into gold. With the gold he built this splendid temple.
