The ancient temple of Lord Sri Kodanada Rama located in Vontimitta in Kadapa District will now be taken over by TTD. The temple will be actively developed in the lines of Bhadradri of Khammam district. This was confirmed by the TTD Trust Board Chairman Dr Ch Krishnamurthy.
The TTD officials graced the ceremonial occasion of taking over of ancient Sri Rama temple at Vontimitta on Wednesday. Dr Krishnamurthy spoke to the media and shared that the age old Hindu temple of 16th century bears great influence of the Vijayanagara architecture.
The TTD Chief confirmed that Sri N Chandrababu Naidu is very keen on developing the ancient temple with a stupendous glory. “Many scholars including Bammera Pothana, Tallapaka Annamacharya hailed from this district and they have dedicated their lives in the service of Lord. “The Lord may be called by different names as Sri Rama in Tetayuga, Sri Krishna in Dwapara and Lord Venkateswara in this Kaliyuga. But the purpose of each incarnation is the protection of Sanatana Dharma. TTD sticks to this principle preached by none other than the Lord Himself”, he said.
Earlier, the EO of the Vontimitta Devasthanam Sri Shankara Balaji handed over the management to the TTD authorities outside the temple . TTD Trust Board members Sri G Bhanuprakash Reddy, Dr P Hariprasad were also present.
