About Us: Venkateswara Swamy Temple
The village is located 18 km from the Gadwal Taluk. This village is very famous for Lord Timmappa Temple, a famous temple in Mahabbobnagar dist. It belongs to The lord Venkateswara. The local people calls the lord as Maldkal Timmappa. He is famous god in around villages. Every year the people celebrates Maldkal Timmappa Jathara (Tirunala) on December Pournami. Devotees from different places like Karnataka & Maharshtra will attend the Jathara. It is an estimation that every year nearly 20 lakh devotees take darsanam. There is a local story related to Tirupati Lord. Balaji with Lord Timmappa. It is said that in olden days the people from the village are not able to make Tirupati Balaji Darshan trip because of the high expenses. So the Lord has incarnated himself here in this village as Lord Timmappa and easily accessible for the devotees. So till the day people from this village won't visit Tirupati with their own expenses as the same Lord is available in their village. The earlier name of the village is "Modala Kallu"(In Kannada Language) (some other similar names are also used by people) which means that First Stone of the deity (Modala = The First & Kallu = The Stone,Deity of Lord). The name itself says that the Lord established his Avatar himself. There is one more story in use in people: All the buildings and architects in this village should be lower height than the Gali Gopuram (The Main Pillar in front of the Temple). If they try to avoid this and try to build the constructions with more height then they will be cursed by the Lord.
