About the Temple

This village is famous for the temple of KasiVishalakshi (Chowdeshwari).It is believed that KasiVishalakshi(Chowdeshwaridevi) came from Varanasi to Nandavarm through an underground passage within 1 day. The temple was built by King NandanaChakravarthy. It is said that the actual deity that was present in the temple was so fearful to watch with the human eye and the powerful aura it carried made many a heart fail on seeing it. Therefore, the doors of the garbhagriha were permanently closed and then another deity was made, which resembled the actual deity in posture, only less fearful to look at and that is the goddess deity that we see today in the temple. The temple structure was elevated so that the current deity sits exactly above the place where the original deity resides
