Legends trace the origin of this Goddess back to Tretayuga and link it up with the wife of Mandhatha, the illustrious ruler of Solar dynasty. Aidamma is worshipped both by high and low class people. She is one of thirty two kinds of grama devathas normally receiving tamasika puja. Though all of them Balipriyas, some are Madhurahara priyas, contented with Naivedayam of the vegetarian dishes. Offering coconut and harati is enough to win her bounteous grace.

This temple enshrines a very big statue of mother Aidamma, in sitting posture measuring eight feet in height. Its enormity and imposing stature, to gather with revealing fierce aspect need not signify her roudra and vindictive nature; for, she is like the omni compassionate mother Parvathi and is liberal in granting boons and succouring ready assistance, the moment she is pleased with true devotion. The annual Sankranti festival is celebrated with unprecedented fanfare, when colour and pegeantry reach the highest pinnacle. After this grandiose festival; the succeeding four Tuesdays are quite auspicious and people congregate in large numbers to offer special ritualistic worship.

It lies in Nagar Kurnool of Palamur district in the state of Andhra Pradesh, connected by bus.
