They have lost the land courtesy the state’s land development act. The culture and tradition of worshipping lord Shaneeshwara is believed to be adopted from these Brahmin immigrants from the neighboring state of Tamil Nadu. Even local folklore point towards, the existence of the temple and its traditions from beyond time immemorial.

In Indian astrology, Shaneeswara is the karaka (indicator) of discipline, authority, old age, asceticism, misery, workers, delays, ambition, leadership and authority, integrity, reputation and unparalleled wisdom.
