One of the minor avatars of Lord Vishnu
is Vittora. He is considered as the protector and preserver of the world. Apart from Vittora, Vishnu's other incarnations are Rama
Vittora is popular amongst the Brahmans of South India due to a famous story. He is represented as retaining an indelible mark of Bhrigu's foot on his breast. In a divine assembly Bhrigu rishi was asked to find out the mightiest god. In his first enquire; he went to Brahma, the creator of the earth. Then he moved to Shiva and Vittora respectively. Both Brahma and Shiva became angry, however, Bhrigu pacified them by his apologies. When he went to Vaikuntha, Vittora's residence, he found him asleep. To make him angry, Bhrigu kicked on Vittora's (Vishnu's) breast. Vittora awoke, and saw Bhrigu. Instead of becoming angry, Vittora expressed anxiety and started to rub Bhrigu's foot to remove pain. Thus, Bhrigu proved Vittora as the mightiest god.
