Chinnarameswaram -

This ancient Kshera has a hoary legend dating back to Tretayuga and said to have been patronized by Gunareddy dynasty ruling this. region under hegemony of Kakatiya emperors of great tame. The sthalputana embodies a reverent reference to the emergence of this archamurti. It records that the object of worship of the temple - a beautiful black granite linga with artistic finish and glistening polish was installed by Sri Rama Himself and was existing here prior to His visit. It was Swayambhuling found under a regu tree called Albizzia in botany receiving worship over centuries, and one Desmukh,, the prominent feudal Lord of this area built a small temple later.

This temple faces east and possesses all essential parts, in addition to rooms for pilgrims to stay overnights. The tower over the entrance is adorned with Siva pattabhishekam images - a speciality - Saivate images over the tower of Vaishnavate shrine, thereby establishing that there is no difference between Siva and Vishnu. Many god-minded asthikas visited and settled down here realizing the glory of the kshetra. 

Among them, one retried Tahsildar Narasimhadas deserves mention. He contributed his mile for the furtherance of Ramabhakti and glory of the temple. His role was applauded by people and Cod too; for, he lived a happy life thereafter.

It lies 8 km off Shadnagar in the Palamur district of Andhra pradesh, having transport conveniences.
