That's why Lord Maha Vishnu is here with his full image but king is doubtful on Lord Maha Vishnu and says you are not the same lord which I always visit. Hearing this Lord Maha Vishnu Guard( Sewak) SeshNaag is angry and cursed the king henceforth no king of this kingdom can visit this temple, if tries then gonna punished. From that day no any Royal family visit this temple.
