An eccentric episode said to have occurred during Sri Rama's exile in Tretayuga is attributed to this kshetra, and it is held very sacred for both Pochamma, one of the manifestations of Parasakti and Sri Rama too. It was originally a hill temple dedicated to Pochamma, belonging to Balipriya-blood thirsty class of goddesses and later became a very popular Vaishnavaalaya after the advent of Sri Rama in his exile. The legend delights us with the episode of Lakshmana's cutting the nose and driving out of Pochamma, when she barred the entry of Sri Rama with Sita and Lakshmana. 

When she made soulful supplication with streaming eyes that she would be completely routed out, if he were to be present on the hill - her original abode. Taking pity Sri Rama consoled her saying that he would ordain the offer of first worship to her and then to him next. She was pleased and took her place on the hill permanently thereafter. Hence the practice of first worship in Pochamma's temple and to Sri Rama next.
