Mulabagilu is originated from the word 'Moodalabagilu' in Kannada which means eastern door.  It is said to be the eastern gate of the Vijayanagara empire.

The Kshetra palaka Sri Anjaneya was installed by Pandava Arjuna.

After Mahabharata war, Arjun realised Hanuman’s on the flag that was tied to his chariot in war. Later Arjuna went on a pilgrimage along with the Hanuman flag. On the way he installed the power of Hanuman on the flag in the murti in Mulbagal (also called Shathaka vatpuri).
The murti is made on granite and about 12 feet tall.
There is a Venkateswara murti believed to have been installed by Maharshi Vasishtha.
A lizard is carved on the wall and people take its blessings as it is believed that it would free them from ills of lizard falling on body.

Great article from @AsheSchow. I lived thru the 'Satanic Panic' of the 1980's/early 1990's asking myself "Has eveyrbody lost their GODDAMN MINDS?!"

The 3 big things that made the 1980's/early 1990's surreal for me.

1) Satanic Panic - satanism in the day cares ahhhh!

2) "Repressed memory" syndrome

3) Facilitated Communication [FC]

All 3 led to massive abuse.

"Therapists" -and I use the term to describe these quacks loosely - would hypnotize people & convince they they were 'reliving' past memories of Mom & Dad killing babies in Satanic rituals in the basement while they were growing up.

Other 'therapists' would badger kids until they invented stories about watching alligators eat babies dropped into a lake from a hot air balloon. Kids would deny anything happened for hours until the therapist 'broke through' and 'found' the 'truth'.

FC was a movement that started with the claim severely handicapped individuals were able to 'type' legible sentences & communicate if a 'helper' guided their hands over a keyboard.
