VEMULAVADA

There is another legend about the greatness of the Dharmagundam. Once Dakshaprajapati was performing a great sacrifice called Yagnajita with a view to excel all other Gods. Other Gods naturally got perturbed at this important Yagna by Dakshaprajapati and, in order to deprive himof the full benefits of it, Sun God abruptly came to the sacrifice and tried to snatch away the 'havis'. But as soon as he touched the 'havis', his hands were cut off and he became handless. Thereupon, he sought the advice of the other Gods for remedy. Other Gods advised him to go to Dharmagundam and perform penance for hundred years. The Sun God did accordingly and got back his golden hands. The Dharmagundam is said to have been in existence prior to the building of the Rajeswara temple.
