KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Chukkapuram - Venugopalaswamy Aalayam 

The legend of this famous ancient shrine is not long, but quite exciting. According to local version, there lived once a devout aristocrat lady, a scion of great royal family, popularly known as Rajamata in Madhurapuram. She was an ardent adorer of Krishna. Lord Krishna appearing in dream directed her to build a village with temple, and arrange the performance of festival in an exuberant manner. Forthwith she implemented the divine injunction by establishing two villages called Gopalapuram and Repalle near Madhurapuram, her own native place. Being very pious and orthodox, she arranged the celebration of Gokulashtami festival on the night of Ashtami in her palace, Vutlapanduga in Gopalapuram on the succeeding day, and on the third day Jalakrida in Repalle. It turned out a grandiose event predicated by huge crowds visiting from far off places. Unfortunately, once there fell two great festivals - the Muslim pirlapandaga and Hindu Kamadahanam on the same day. Due to rising of a frivolous difference of opinion between Hindus and Muslims, the Muslim fanatics burnt down the temple along with many houses. The pious priests scenting danger timely, ran away with the valuables and archamurti its the dead of night. In course of their flight the Lord's garland fell at a village, and it was aptly named as Poomalapalli. And by morning the running priests halted at a village called Kalikidona. The exhausted priests were directed by God to install him there itself. They obeyed. And hence emergence of a. beautiful temple in Kalikidona which later became Chukkapuram.

This temple is of moderate dimensions, yet possesses all the part. The archarnurti is also coming to the rescue of his pious devotees in limes of need. The annual festival falls on the Phalguna Pournami and lures thousands of devotee.

The village lies in Talakohdapalli mandalam of Palamur district of Andhra Pradesh, connected by bus service from the neighboring towns.
