VIJAYAWADA

KANAKADURGA TEMPLE

It is a much -frequented popular shrine, and the deity has become a household Goddess of thousands of people here. Kanakadurga and Vijayawada are so interlinked and they are not two in one, but one in two. Mention Kanakadurga,  Vijayawada in its glory parades before our mental eyes; Uttar, Vijayawada, Kanakadurga in her ethereal splendour stands before you and beckons a visit to her Sannidhi. No theist goes back without worshipping her in his visit to this city, whatever may be the pressure of time exerts on him. Modern Vijaywada owes its name, glory, prosperity to this All-Powerful Jaganmata, whose bounteous benignty is making it grow in dasadisas to the jealousy of many cities in Andhra Pradesh, or other states. The citizens too are equally grateful and enthusiastic in displaying their pure devotion by spending lacs of rupees on festival days and conducting regular pujas on a grand scale and proving worthy of her Vatsalya. About the origin of the temple, there are several versions. Legends are many but claims are contradictory. Mata Kanakadurga according to one Purana emerged into this world by the power of penance of Sailasakthi, a manifestation of Indrakila hill itself to relieve the people from asura menace. And other version affirms that this holy shrine is one among the eighteen Saktipitas, and she is one of the forms of Sakti. Padma purana proclaims that Kanakadurga is a manifestation of Parvathi.
