About Temple & History

Mythologically and historically the most famous divine temple in India Bhadrachalam Sri Ramakshetra. During the Treta yoga, a rock that was the resting place of the Silarams who were exiled in the Parnashala area of Dandakaranyam, brought joy to the dime couple and became an object of their grace. As a boon of Lord Bramha, Merudevi gave birth to a son named Bhadra to Meru Parvata raja couple. Bhadra, who was a devotee of Sri Rama since his childhood, received the teaching of Sri Rama Taraka Mantra from sage Narada and performed severe penance in Dandakaryana for the realization of Sri Rama. Under the influence of that heat, Srimannarayana again assumed the form of Sri Rama and appeared as a quadrupedal Rama, wearing Shankha Chakra Danurbhanam, seated on Padmasam with Sita on his left thigh and Lakshmana on his left side. Pimmata Bhadramaharshi’s wish was turned into a mountain from Sri’s footprints on the peak of Bhadra’s heart, facing the holy Godavari river.

This area Is called Bhadrachalam because of Bhadra’s achalam (Hill). The Lord is also known as Bhadradri Rama, Vaikunta Rama because of his actual incarnation from Vaikunta. Omkara Rama because the deities of Sitarama lakshmana here are in the form of 'A' Kara ‘M’ Kara ‘U’ Kara and Rama Narayana because he wears Shankha Chakra Dhanurbanam. The great devotees S, Tirurnangai Alwars and Sankara Bhagwatpadu Mahathmulenda all served this Lord. Especially, a devotee named “Pokala Dhammakka” belonging to the 16th century, put up a canopy of palm trees for the Lord worshipped and offered palm fruits and became Apara Sabari. Kancharla gopanna famous as Pimmata Bhaktaramadasa offered the temple gopura, prakara mandapas precious ornaments to rama sang many hymns. and “Vaggeyakarudai” bhadradri entered the service of Rama. Later, the devotees Tumu Namsmhadas and Varadaramadasadi dedicated their lives to Lord Rama and became blessed. Bhadradri Rama, who is the gold of those measured in this way, is the light of the Telugus as Sri Pancharatra Divyagamoktam, receiving songs of worship according to Sri Vaishnava tradition and bestowing all the blessings of the devotees.
