History Behind greatness of lord Kubera:
Lord kubera was a great devotee of lord Shiva.He used to held great homam n also do thapas to get the darshan of lord shiva. One day Lord Shiva gave darshan to Kubera with Goddess Parvathi. Kubera was stunned to see the splendor and beauty of Goddess Parvathi. He felt sorry that he had not worshipped such a fine Goddess earlier and one of his eyes winked. Goddess Parvathi was angry that Kubera was seeing her with evil intention. She made his eye burst. Kubera lost one eye sight. Lord Kubera requested siva to forgive him and pleaded that he had not seen the Goddess with any evil intention.Siva asked Goddess to decide. Goddess Parvathi forgave Kubera and let one of the eyes grow on smaller size. So one eye of kubera is smaller that the other. Kubera was rewarded by shiva with the post of one of the Guards of eight dishas. Kubera was given the post of guarding northen disha. Goddess made him the Lord of wealth and materials.

This is the first temple for Sri Lakshmi Kuberar. Kubera is the God of wealth and material but not its originator. His responsibilities is to distribute the above two things properly. Creating wealth and distributing the same is the devine mother Goddess Lakshmi. Kubera is seen with his family in the photographs. In his hand a vessel srtued with Navarathinas will be there in some photographs he is seen a blessing and the Gold coins and Navarathinas are pouring down.
It is even Believed that Lord Balaji or Venkateswara at Thirupathi is said to have Borrowed money form Kubera for his marrige and he is still paying the interest on the loan amount. Hence it would seem that lord Venkateswara will be in protection during the ashadmasa.
