History of Mopidevi Temple
Sri Subramanyeswar Swamy is the main god of the royal family of Challapalli, which is in charge of running the temple at the moment. The Sri Sakaleswara Swamy temple is right next to the Mopidevi Temple. It has a Swayambhu Shiva Lingam, which means it came into being on its own. The name of the temple comes from the fact that Sagara Chakravarthy, Sri Rama’s grandfather, worshipped this Lingam. In 1783, when floods washed away the Mopidevi village, people found the Lingam. Later, the landlord of the area, Adusumilli Gangubhotlu, built the temple. At the moment, the Sri Sakaleswara Swamy temple is run by the Adusumulli family.
The Story Behind Mopidevi Temple
The legend says that the four Deva Rishis (sages) Sankara, Sanakasa, Sanatkumara, and Sanatsujata were immortal and looked like five-year-old children. The Deva Rishis had a lot of knowledge and devotion, but they didn’t know much about the world around them. In fact, they didn’t even know they were naked. One day, they went to Kailasa, where Shiva lived, to honour him. At the same time, Sachi Devi, Swaha Devi, Goddess Saraswathi, and Goddess Lakshmi also came.
The child Subramanyeswara was sitting on the lap of his mother, the goddess Parvati. When he saw that the Goddesses were dressed and the Deva Rishis were not, he was confused. He didn’t know what to do, so he started to laugh, and his mother told him to stop. Later, Subramanyeswar saw how stupid he had been and asked for permission to do penance as a snake for many years. Mopidevi is the name that was given to the place where Subramanyeswar did his penance. The head god, Subramanyeswar Swamy, who looks like the Shiva Lingam, is called the God of Snakes.
Significance of Mopidevi Temple
Ancient writings say that the powerful Vindhya mountain, which is between North India and South India, realised how strong it was and began to grow upwards. When it got to the Sun, the air turned dark. Mortals, immortals, plants, and animals all had trouble because of the darkness. Sage Agasthya was asked by the Devtas to make the Vindhya mountain see sense and be humble.
Sage Agasthya was in Varanasi when the crisis happened, and he agreed to help. He went to the south of India. When the Vindhya mountain saw the great sage, it shrunk back to its original size to make room for him. The great sage then made the Vindhya mountain promise to stay the same size until he came back. Sage Agasthya, on the other hand, chose to live in South India. Mount Vindhya waited for the wise man for a very long time, but he never came back.
Even now, Vindhya mountain is still the same size. The great sage and his followers went through the area, where Subramanyeswar did hard penance and turned into a Lingam. The wise man knew where it was and said that there were tigers there. He also said that if they went east, they would find the Subramanya temple, which is called the Subramanyeswar Swamy Temple.
