TALLAPAKA - SRI SIDDHESWARA SWAMY AALAYAM

Tallapaka has the unique honour producing a great Vaggeyakara - Annamayya, whose lyrical output and its glory raised the fame of that little village to the intercontinental level. So Tallapaka and Annamayya have become interrelated, rather they are inseparable in a way. But the pre-eminence of Siddheswaraswamy Aalayam, existing there for several centuries now seems eclipsed, rather it is bypassed, to speak the truth. An unforgivable commission, if truth is accepted. This ancient temple with its grand Sivalinga, about two feet in height with several other grand big size icons of Saivate deities, like Mother Parvathi locally called Kamakshi Amma, Vinayaka, Chandisa, Dakshinamurti, Subrahmanya with his two consorts, Virabhadra, Kalabhairava and the life size. image of Maheswar enjoyed a glittering past. And it impresses the devout bhaktas, that the undying glory of that padakavitha pitamaha and the fame of once unknown village have emanated only from Siddheswaraswamy that Omni compassionate, who demonstrated many sports in the dim past. The locals give an exuberant account of its memorable past and celebrate its annual festivals in August every year on a grand scale. Soon after the Kalyanotsavam, the Utsavamurthis are taken out in procession through the streets of village, and it is believed they give salvation with a single darsan. Cultural activities like dance, dramas, religious discourses, folk entertainments make the village a veritable Kailas for about a week or so then. Among the eyeful sculptural beauties packed to the doors inside, the image of Ekatatayya deserves mention. Belief is current that the ailment of headache takes to heels, if the victim bends his head before this Tatayya, who it appears was a life long bachelor and lured by the Sivalila, settled down here doing Saivaaradhana and so gained spiritual powers unlimited. The believed are relieved and the sceptics chuckling go out for tablets only to aggravate it after momentary relief. It is a worth-seeing temple of supreme importance.

It lies 3 km of Rajampet, the taluq head quarters of the same name accessible by bus from there or Cudappah.
