PENUGONDA AND ITS POMP

Built in strict adherence to the tenets of vastusastra, it was exceedingly grand - beautified with twelve broad Surya Veedhis and sixteen Chandra Veedhis, each adorned with splendid mansions, high pavilions, enticing little gardens, spiral stared wells, lovely step ponds, imposing temples with broad halls, surrounded by five strong prakaras with deep moats.

Tastefullly decorated and elegantly furnished houses were allotted to them in the central part of the nagara. With befitting houses for Brahmins m the west, palatial mansions nor Kshatrias in the east and cosy dwelling places for the Sudras in the south and northern parts of the city. 

As promised, Mahavishnu and Mahalakshmi in the names of Janardhanaswamy and Konakamala, Maheswar and Uma in the names of Nagareswar and Vindhyavasini took their seats in the magnificently built temples, and started raining boons on the citizens to fulfilling their desires on the merits of their sat karmas.

Hence, a belief was current that a circumambulation of the city confers the same merit as that of going round the earth bounded by four oceans. As it was materialized and executed at the instance of the Highest Divinities, neither there was dearth in anything, nor imports were awaited for daily consumption and so was hailed as a city surpassing the splendor of Atakapuri, the capital of Kubera.
