Temple History

Sri Veerabhadra Swamy was born brightly to demolish DAKSHAYAGNA. After demolition of Dakshyagna with advice of Lord Maha Vishnu, he again a lived DAKSHA and the Dakshyagna was successfully completed. Even after completion of Yagna, Sri Veerabhadra Swamy could not leave his anger and so he was full in fire that was caused with the YOGA Sakthi of SATHI DEVI. To pacify Sri Veerabhadra Swamy, the saints and the devotees went to Vaikunta and requested Sri Maha Vishnu to pacify Veerabhadra Swamy.

On their request Maha Vishnu went to Veerabhadra Swamy in the disguise of Narasimha to pacify Veerabhadra Swamy. But Sri Veerabhadra Swamy caught hold of Maha Vishnu tightly. Then Maha Vishnu who was in Narasimha disguise has gone to Brahma Loka and informed Lord Brahma Deva about Veerabhadra Swamy. 0
Then Thrimurtulu requested Adiparasakthi to pacify Veerabhadra Swamy who was in harsh stage. Then she has sent one of her KALA by name Bhadrakali (Out of 16 KALAs) on earth to pacify Veerabhadra Swamy but it was in vain. Then she was shrink in the nearby water tank and came out in the disguise of a young lady and went near Veerabhadra Swamy. After seeing her, Veerabhadra Swamy was pacified.

Then they both got married in the way of GANDARVA VIVAHAM. All the Maha Munis have erected Ashramas called Muni Mandali which was turned in the name of MURAMALLA after many years. From then onwards, all the Maha Munis are performing Gandarva Vivaham to Lord Veerabhadra Swamy in the disguise of Nitya Kalyanam, Which is continuing till today.
Accordingly, the devotees are performing marriages to their daughters. If the marriages to their daughters are delayed parents are performing marriages to Sri Veerabhadra Swamy so that the marriage of their daughter will be performed early.

The Nitya Kalyanam of Sri Veerabhadra Swamy will be witnessed not only by the devotees but it is in vogue that Munis like Agastya, Sukudu, Viswamitra, Vasista, Gowtama, Bhargava, Vyasa, Bharadwaj, Marichidu, kasyapudu, Markendeyudu and Narada will also witness this Kalyanam.
