Sri Jagajjanani Temple” in the name itself indicates that this is the temple for Mother of World. In the Telugu language, “Jagamu” means World and “Janani” means Mother. The Goddess located here is “Sri Jagajjanani”, she is a mother of Universe.
This is the real thing happened long ago when the life is started on the earth. When Sri Jagajjanani Matha decides to start the life on earth, she first came to earth and she incarnated herself in Idol near ManasaSarovaram in the Himalayas above 19,500 ft from the sea level. Every day all Gods and Goddesses came here and make a bath in ManasaSarovaram and pray to Sri Jagajjanani which she resides near to the lake. This was briefly described in our Vedas, Old Manuscripts like “Kapalika Vidhi”, “Vamakeswara Tantram”, “Koula Achara Tantram”, “Sakthi Sthal”, “Devi Bagavatham” etc. There is no husband and wife form for this Sri Jagajjanani as she forms both the Husband and wife forms when she needs them. First of all, Matha gave her male forms as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
And she gave her female forms of Saraswathi, Lakshmi and Parvathi respectively to Trimoorthulu as wifes to produce, develop and stop the life on Planet Earth. Sri Jagajjanani called with various names in various places like Maha Maya, Yoga Maya, Adhi Para Shakthi etc. Out of all, she is the Holy Mother of Universe so called as “Sri Jagajjanani” which fits for all names in the world. Long ago how she incarnated in the Himalayas with the same form, now she again incarnated at our Nandyal, which is the very holy place for Hindus.
This temple gopuram consists of all the forms of gods and goddesses and they are “Mukkoti Devathalu”, and “ Crores of living beings”, “Kalpa Vrukshamu”, “Holy seven sages”,” Holy seven mothers”, “Nava Durgas” and, “Ashtadasa Sakthi Peetalu” etc. So the gopuram of the temple is also a rare and sacred thing to see there.
