TADPATRI

Both these temples are situated on the banks of river Pinakini, which at this place takes the northern course, or becomes Uttara Vahini, and hence is considered as very sacred at this spot. The Siva temple facing west is more ancient. It is stated that the area in which this place is situated was formerly known as Bhaskara Kshetras, to the thick forest consist-Ing of plenty of palm trees. Hence it was called Tamlapalli (Tati Vanain). During the time of one Pemmasani Ramalinga Naidu, who was a local chieftain, under the great Vijayanagar king, Proudha Devaraya, this place was renamed as "Tadpatri" and hence the same Tadpatri still stand.
