As for the faithful information of elders the place where the people ended trails of finding trunk is named as "ENUGU BHODHE" now it is being called as "PATHA CHERUVU". People in and around CHODAVARAM believe that the obstacles are completely vanished, if heart full , faithful and obedient prayers are offered to him.There are Devotees from many of the places in the state who believe that he is a powerful God.
