Sri Raja Rajeshwara Swami Temple, Vemulavada

About Sri Raja Rajeshwara Swami Temple Information-Vemulavada

This temple of Lord Siva in the form of Raja Rajeshwara Swami is very famous in this part of the region. The presiding deity of the temple is Sri Raja Rajeswara Swami who is locally popular as Rajanna who is adorned on both the sides by the idol of Sri Raja Rajeswari Devi on the right side and to the left is the idol of Sri Laxmi Sahitha Siddi Vinayaka.

There is holy tank called the Dharma Gundam in the middle of the temple. It is considered holy to have a dip in the water of this pond but now the water is a bit polluted and doesn t look that hygienic to have a dip. If you really want to have a dip it is better to have few drops of water from the pond over the head. Four mandapas are constructed around the pond with the siva lingas in the middle of them and the Statue of Lord Siva is in the centre of the Holy tank.

Though a lot of customs are followed here a unique custom which is very popular to this temple is that of "offering of Cow" to the god, locally called as "Kode Mokku".  Local people believe that by offering the "Kode Mokku" devotees will be cleansed of their sins and couple will be blessed with children.

This temple is famous as a religious centre and also for its communal harmony. In the centre of the temple complex there is a Mosque which was constructed more than 400 years back. This is in the honour of a Muslim devotee of Lord Siva. Not only this, the place was a great religious centre for Buddhists and Jains. Even the present day a lot these people visit this place as part of their religious tour. There are a lot of sculptures, epigraphs in the premises which depict the cultures and rituals of both Jains and Buddhists. Also this temple is popular for both Shaivaites and Vishavites.

During Sivaratri which is the most auspicious of the festival for Shivaites there is a very heavy conglomeration of devotees. The crowd which gathers here and the revenue which is collected as the offering s of the devotees run to lakhs and is 2nd to the Lord of Seven Hills, Tirumala.
