PENUGONDA - SRI VASAVI KANYAKAPARAMESWARI TEMPLE

Sri Kanyakaparameswari, the touch-stone of immaculate chastity and impeccable purity that heightened the glory of Hindu womanhood is one of the manifestations of Mother Parvathi, the Universal Mother. By her inimitable monumental decision of Agnipravesa for cleansing her sacrosanct body defiled by the kamadrishti of that lusty Vishnu vardhan emperor has neither parallels is in the past, nor history and ingenuity of humanity could ever recreate in future. She divinised the merchant community by her supreme self-sacrifice and made the Indian womanhood adorable with prostrations times umpteen and adoration with flowery sweet verses in number unaccountable.

Such deity of universal adoration is adored at Penugonda, sanctified in the dim past by a Mahayagna performed by venerable Pulastya. The very same pulastya yagna gunda was  changed later into a big pond, where form Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara emerged in the form of three lotus blooms from a single big root is now called Penugonda.
