As is popularly believed, the undivided Dakshina Kannada district is part of the Parashuram Creation of the Western Ghats to the coast. According to this belief, Parashurama, who had taken up the vow of eradicating the Kshatriyas from the earth, wished to create a space for the Kshatriyas to settle in after he had rounded the earth and eliminated all the Kshatriyas. The creation of the Parasurama was the land that had been left behind by a sea monster to stand on a summit of the Western Ghats and throw its ax (purusha) contaminated with blood into the sea. Perhaps this belief is reinforced by the fact that the district is located in the lower part of the Western Ghats.
