VIJAYAWADA - SRI SUBRAHMANYASWAMY AALAYAM

Forthwith he built two temples one for Balasubrahmanya called Dandayudhapani by cutting out a big sized boulder into cave and another for Sri Valli Devasena sameta Subrahmanya Swamy, just in front of the cave temple. All are in modest, yet grandiose proportions and beautifications with provision for flag staff, Pradakshana marga, niches for Parivaradevathas, Navagrahas etc. And on 18.5.1954 the deities were installed with Agamic rituals amidst unprecedented fanfare. The functions were attended by huge crowds. Devotional activities were initiated and conducted with a rare zeal, as its origin is imbued with mystery. Moreover, near the cave temple, there is an ant-hill - the natural abode of the cobra and is worshipped by women folk with great adour. And many devotees witnessed the spectacle of that cobra rising, its head and receiving the offerings of milk etc. So this kshetra is blessed with the triple aspects of Lord Subrahmanya - he is adorned in the boy aspect - Sri Dandayudhapani; wedded form - Sri Valli Devasena sametha Subrahmanya and finally;  the Sarparupa - cobra aspect. Combination of all these aspects are rare rather unique not found in many places in India or abroad, say even in Tamilnadu, where one can come across Murugan shrines scattered all over and at every step to be precise, says the priest.

Its importance started waxing since many holy men from far and near visited and hailed the building of temple atop as quite auspicious and grand; they donated liberally for expansion activities.
