Temple Location & Temple History
Sri Sitaramachndra swamy vari Devasthanam was located in Maddivalasa village in Vangara Mandal , Srikakulam District in Andhra Pradesh. Once upon a time this is a village having 60 Brahmin families who regularly perform the “ Vedaadyanam” and “Nithyaagnihotram” and “Nithya Devathaarchana”as part of their routine activity beside agriculture. All these families are Dravidians and popularly known as “ Toorpu Dravidulu”
Because of social changes that took place most of these families were migrated to nearest cities/towns for education and employment and were settled as Government employees. One more reason for this migration is the Estate abolition act because of which most of the families lost their agriculture lands Now hardly there are any Brahmin families in the village.
The Sitaramachandra swamy vari temple was constructed in 1990 with the great efforts put in by Sri. Ayalasomayajula Surya Kameswara Rao garu (Present chairperson of the Devasthanam Trust) along with other villagers and also with the financial and execution support of earlier migrated families.
“Vigraha Prathistapana” was done the auspicious day i.e “Bheeshma Ekaadhasi” day 27th February 1990 by Sri A.S Kameswra Rao gau. Big number of participants in this event made the event a great successes.
