Malakonda Temple History:
The legend was that when Lord Narayana Swamy was on Seshathalpam, he requested Goddess Mahalakshmi to sit next to His feet on Palasamudram that I will do it for you if you have any desires. And the Goddess asked Lord Narayana Swamy that only a few Divya Kshetras were constructed on earth and that the devotees could not go there because of their expenses. So she told him to construct for the devotees a Divya Kshetra. Lord Narayana Swamy developed the holy mountain Vanamala on Her request, which was later called Malakonda or Malyadri and made Kshetra for the devotees.
There are seven Teerdams on Malyadri.
- Varuna Teerdam
