Kartik Swami Legend

There is the legendry story behind the Kartikye temple. It is said that once Lord Shiva ordered both his sons to take a round of universe for the opportunity of being prayed first in the world. Both Kartikye and Ganesh participated and started the race to be first. Kartikye flew on peacock and ganesh thoughtof something and circled around Lord Shiva and explained him that his universe lies in his parents. Listening such words Lord Shiva became happy and Ganesh was rewarded by privilege of being worshipped first. On hearing this Kartikye became angry and he gave his flesh to his mother and bones to his father which is placed in this temple.
