Vemulawada Temple History :
A king, Sri Raja Raja Narendra, once came to this place to hunt wild animals. But he killed a Brahmin boy accidentally, who was drinking water from a pond. Then he got an incurable disease and went to several holy places on a pilgrimage and returned to this spot. He drank holy water from the Dharmagundam one day, and slept all night praying to Lord Sri Raja Rajeshwara Swamy. In the dreams of the King, Lord Shiva appeared and asked him to take the Lingam out of Dharmagundam and put it in the temple.
The king then took the Lingam out and washed it with water from Dharmagundam. In order to hold Lingam within the temple, he constructed a temple on the hill while he slept the night that Holy Sidhas came and created the idol of God inside the temple. When the king was worried that the opportunity to set up Shiva Lingam was missing, Lord Shiva appeared in his dreams and vowed that the name of the king would forever be synonymous with the site. His incurable illness was then healed as well.
