BHADRACHALAM

RAMADAS EPISODE

An exciting historical evidence begins with the appointment of Kancherla Gopanna, an ordinary God-minded man as Tahsildar of the Revenue Taluq of Bhadrachalam, under the sovergnity of Tanisha of Golkonda, a staunch Muslim, yet a renowned ruler, famous for religious tolerance; who ultimately became instrumental in throwing a halo round the archamurthi of the sacred shrine.

To begin with, Gopanna was a devout brahmin in whom theistic impulses were predominant right from the birth. He hailed from a village Nelakondapalli of Khammam district. He was poor-unable to see both ends meet, tried however much by right means. Strangely enough, he had fortune in the persons of two maternal uncles - Akkanna and Madanna, who were in the service of Abdul Hassan Tanisha, the Nawab of Nizam then, as ministers. It so coincided that the Tahsildar of Bhadrachalam Taluq died then. To filling in the vacant post, Gopanna was preferred. Akkanna and Madanna were pleased when their recommendation met with success, more was the pleasure to the Gopanna's family sinking is stark poverty, and most was to the cause of theism. Gopanna ably and satisfactorily discharged his official duties and became a popular officer. His devotion too was slowly coming into the flood light of public gaze. Just at this juncture a miracle happened. Pokala Rammakka, a local devotee of considerable fame, found to her good fortune the image of Sri Rama. For installation and regular worship, funds and patronage were found indispensable.
