VEMULAVADA

Besides many other & Sivalingas in the place, there are also a few Buddhist and Jain images found in the premises of the temple. But all these images seem to be later additions. Similarly, there is one Seshasayi temple just behind the Rajeswara temple in the same compound. In addition to these, there are two other temples called the Bhimeswara temple and the Kedareswara temple, in the same village. These two temples are of great importance and antiquity, and have been famous even before the present Rajeswara temple was constructed.

It is mentioned in the book "Rajeswara Mahatmyam" that Bhimeswara himself took the form of Rajeswara since the time when a king by name Narendra constructed the later temple. It is said that Vemulavada Bhimakavi, who is a well-known Telugu poet, acquired all his talents due to the grace of the Lord of this place.
