Ravana makes a futile attempt to lift the siva lingam. Siva appears before him and says the place will be henceforth known as 'Bhookailasam'. The movie ends with a placard that it is the present day Gokarna-Mahabaleswar. A five minute short film on Sivarathri festival in Gokarna was shown as an added attraction at the end.
