This kshetra acquired immense sanctity and spiritual glory by a great yagna performed by Tikkanna, one of the greatest poets of Telugu literature. He enriched the world literature by his masterly translation of Vyasa Mahabharata into Telugu and divinised this place. with that mahayagna and which in turn immortalised him. He was honoured with the honorific title 'Somayaji' only after that monumental act. The place by then it self was famous for its temple dedicated to Kamakshi Tayi. Its earlier glory in the form of many lain monuments is seen even today. But they are scattered to nooks and corners. So the history of this sacrosanct kshetra can be traced to pre-Christian era. The temple undergoing renovations from time to time is built in vesara architectural design and possesses all the indispensable parts: Immensity greets the eyes. The Mother's icon is quite pleasant and benign in aspect. Agamic worship is offered and it is enjoying visitors through out the year. Literary men of all classes deem the visitation an indispensable duty to pay homage to Tikkannas yagna bhumi and to Mother's boundless compassion for the inspiration she blessed to get his master peace universal recognition.

It lies 25 km off Nellore, commanding bus service.
