Mr. Kesava Rao and his family members are said to be staunch believers in the goddess and have benefited in the business. As a token of their faith in the presiding deity, Mr. Kesava Rao wanted to make a lasting contribution to the temple and approached the EO asking him to suggest an idea.

EO of the temple Mr. Vijaya Kumar suggested to Mr. Kesava Rao to contribute golden flowers, as the temple did not have them until now.
