VEMULAVADA

Introduction

VEMULAVADA is in Karimnagar District of Andhra Pradesh and is situated about 20 miles from Karimnagar oil the road from Karimnagar to Kamareddy. The Village is an ancient one and has been in existence from the time of the Western Chalukyas, as is evident from the inscriptions that are now available at this place. Vemulavada is famous as the seat of a Western Chalukya temple known as the Rajeswaraswami temple. There is also another temple called the Waddegeswaraswami temple, which is also in a good state of preservation. The Rajeswara temple is obviously so named, either because it was built by Rajaditya which was the Biruda of Narasimha I, of the Chalukyas of Vemulavada, who was the grandson of Vinayaditya Yuddhamalla I, or is named after him. There is a big tank which is on the northern side of the Rajeswara temple.. Called Dharmagundam. A big stream flowing by the side of the village feeds this.
