BHADRACHALAM

Bhadrachalam Ramaswami temple has also become famous, by its association with a great Rama Bhakta, Saint Ramadas, who was very closely and in timately associated with the temple.

Saint Ramadas was originally named as Gopanna and was the nephew of Akkanna and Madanna, who were Hindu civil servants in the reigns of the last Kutub Shahi king Tanishah.

Ramadas were a Taluk official who was sent here to collect the revenues for his masters.

He collected the revenues, but instead of remitting them to his masters, he thought that the money could be better used for constructing a temple for Srirama, and hence without any, thought for the conse- quences, he spent all the money, by en- larging the small temple and by conducting several festivals in the temple.

He was found a guilty of embezzlement of State funds and was sentenced to be imprisoned by Tanashah. Tradition has it that he was imprisoned for about 12 years.
