ORIGIN OF PENUGONDA

The Vysya munis descended to Bhuloka in an aerial chariot at an enchanting spot graced by a centrally located lovely big pond of great antiquity coupled with divinity.

The charm of its vast expanse of crystal clear waters, enhanced by the rhythmic sounds of never ending, rip lets, caused by gracefully moving white swans feasted their eyes while the fragrant cool breeze wafting from the fully blossomed lotus flowers anointed their anointed their bodies. 

At its touch, thrills passed in their spines and made them oblivious of environs. For, this sacred pond had a sacrosanct legend of immense divinity. It was once the Yagnakunda created for a great yagna performed by Pulastya for the welfare of the world. Then the Triad - Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar entered the fire-pit to make it auspicious. 

After completion, it was converted into a pond with lotus creepers, each root bearing three blooms, in token of the eternal presence of the Trimurthis. So it was infinitely sacred. Deeming its surroundings most holy, Viswakarma built a beautiful city around it under the advice and master plan of Brahma for their dwelling.
