The past of this ancient shrine is as awe-some as its popularity. During its heyday, there used to be offering of naivedyam to the goddess with sacrifice of one hundred animals and lighting of one thousand earthern lamps around a help of cooked rice This deity is said to be the wife of Jamadagni maharshi and after the severing of head, she assumed fierce aspect and is receiving tamasika puja, here and with exotic rituals varying from place to place. Puranas are replete with queer forms of this goddess and blood curdling prayer services she is receiving. Some legends portray her as the Universal Mother and a few as Seemadhi devatha. Whatever may be interpretation, she, is balipriya and appeased with tamasika puja. The statue of this deity is unusually big and gives darsan in awful form.

There are two shrines in this village itself and dedicated to same Yellamma under two different names, such as Ravikanti Yellamma and Modampalli Yellamma. High caste people offer Satwika pooja at the former, and others tamasika in the latter. And the two are equally popular, and visitation too is equal but regarding the granting of boons the latter is extremely compassionate. Daily worship is conducted in the manner envisaged The annual festival draws unusual a big number exceeding thousands.

It lies in near Kaluvakurti of Palamur district of Andhra Pradesh, accessible by bus.
