There is a mythological story behind this temple that is, Vishnu Sahasranama was first composed and recited by Bhishma when he was on his last times or on the death bed. And Lord Krishna went to see Bhishma because he was in his last days. When Bhishma met Lord Krishna, he started reciting Vishnu Sahasranama immediately which means, a rosary of the thousand names of Lord Vishnu.


The temple is one of the oldest temples in Telangana, which was been constructed during the time of Akkanna and Madanna, who were the uncles of Bhakta Ramdas. According to the tradition, a devotee who used to visit Tirupati every year could not do so on one occasion owing to serious ill-health. So, Lord Venkateshwara appeared in his dream and said, I am right here in the jungle nearby. You don’t have to worry. The devotee at once moved to the place indicated by the Lord in the dream and saw a mole- hill there inside it. But somehow the axe struck Lord Balaji’s idol covered by the mole-hill below the chin and on the chest, and blood started flowing from the wounds, flooding the ground. He could not believe his eyes when he saw this and suddenly he could not believe his ears also when he heard a voice from the air which said, Flood the mole-hill with cow’s milk. And when the devotee did as the lord said, a Swayambhu idol of Lord Balaji go with Sridevi, and Bhoodevi was founded since then idol was installed with the due rites, and a temple was built for it.
