Malkhed - Uttaradhi Matha

Shri Jayateertha is believed to be an avatara of Indra with Aavesha of Shesha and blessed by goddess Durga ( Shri Mahalaxmi) with a writing instrument and a piece of areca nut; the former to write with the commentaries on Madhva original works on palm leaves and the latter to smear the writing to make it permanent.
