Four Out the five of his ideal sons refused; for it was matricide out and out. They were cursed Then he called his last son, Parasurama and bade hire to kill her. In minutes he accomplished his father's wish. Pleased with his filial duty, he asked him to name his desire. At once he prayed for the life to his mother dead, and retract the curse called down on his brothers. Jamadagni contented infinitely at his exemplary character, gave life to the dead body now in two parts, head at one place and body at other. And then said Jamadagni that the head cannot be joined to the torso for the reason that it fell on an impure spot. He then ordained worship to them by all classes of people Such temples were not fond any ware in India except here. When he sprinkled holy water from his Kamandala on the dismembered body, there emerged two forms. They were named Yellamma Devi and Bhudevi. Yellamma is the head part, and Bhudevi, the body. Later they were made the gramadevathas and are being worshipped with great ardour since then As this place brought to light Parasurama's out standing innate traits and highly evolved virtues-Pithrubhakti, Matruprema and Sodaranuraga, it was called Parasurama kshetra. Annual festivals are celebrated on a grand scale.

It lies near Kurnool of Andhra Pradesh and is accessible by road and rail.
