JEWELS OF BHARATAM SERIES [TM]
TADIPATRI SRI BUGGA RAMA LINGESGHWARA TEMPLE
Tataki, a demon lady who tried to kill Sreeram on his way to save the yaga of Viswamitra but was killed by Sreeram at this very place and hence the name.
Sri Bugga Rama Lingeswara Swamy temple: It is located on the northern end of the town, where the River Penna lies. Water oozes all the time from the pedestal of the Siva Lingam here and people treat this as holy water. Unlike other temples, this temple has main entrances on the south and west. In this temple there is a secret tunnel to Tirupathi, but the entrance of the tunnel is now sealed. At the river side of the temple there is a statue of goddess standing by steps. It is believed that when the water level of the river Penna reaches the navel point of that statue, the entire town Tadpatri will be sinking in the water and that leads to its end.
