Lord Parshuram’s obedience
Sage Jamadagni had five sons, Lord Parshuram was one of them. The Sage was displeased with his wife Renuka Devi for some reason and he asked his sons to cut off her head. The first four brothers did not obey but Lord Parshuram obeyed and cut off Renuka Mata’s head. Sage Jamadagni was very pleased and granted a boon. Lord Parshuram asked for Renuka Mata’s life to be restored. In the temple, only the head of Renuka Mata can be seen.
