Sullurpet Chengalamma Temple History :

History informs us that in the fourth and fifth centuries it was formed. People also call her the “Tenkali” goddess of the village. With the passage of time, devotees like Chengalamma frequently worship her. Devotees come to witness “Chengalamma Jatara” in big numbers.

The goddess of the Village who was called Tankali gained a reputation as sullurpet chengalamma temple Thalli and faced the ocean with her idol in the temple. Devotees from various areas of the state visit the site and carry out their vows, referring to the goddess as the mother who liberally gives boons.The natural picture of the goddess adorning the banyan tree’s hanging roots (vooda) is truly an amazing spectacle.

Sullurpet Chengalamma Temple Legend:

Legend goes that some kids who were swimming discovered chengalamma idol in the nearby river and carried it to the present place. There will be festivals called tirunallu periodically. Thousands of individuals from nearby villages are participating during this moment.

During this ‘ tirunallu, ‘ a goat is attached to one end of the pole for one day and is circled in the air in front of the temple. Hence the name Sullurpeta, this method is called “sullu.” Besides the ‘ sullu, ‘ there is also ‘ teppotsavam ‘ where Sri Chengalamma’s idol will be performed on a “teppa,” a ship, in the river Kalangi, which flows close to the temple. Mahishasura Mardini and fireworks are also involved in Tirunallu.
