History of Hemareddy Mallamma Temple:
In the “History of Srisailam” in the 14th century, there is a village named Ramapuram which is located near to Srisailam. In the village there is a couple of Nagireddy and Gouamma, they are not having children owing to this they went to offer their prayers at Srisailam Mallikarjuna Swamy temple. Lord Shiva pleased with their sincere devotion, appeared in Nagireddy’s dream, and blessed the couple with a daughter.
The name of that child is Mallamma who was blessed to be a great devotee herself to Lord Shiva. Mallammma married to Baramareddy, after marriage the household of her in-laws increased wealth. She is also suffered many obstructions from her mother-in-law and sister-in-law for her worship to Lord Shiva, but failed their attempts and accepted her dedication to Lord Shiva.
Lord Shiva gave divine darshan to Mallamma for her prayers and Mallamma shed tears in happiness. We can find two water channels from the place where Mallamma lived. The stream is named as Mallamma Kanneeru (Happy tears of Mallamma). After this Mallamma went to Srisailam and maintained Goshala which is behind the Srisailam temple.
