Sanjeevaraya Swamy Vellala, Rajupalem Mandal, Kadapa District, Andhra Pradesh.Anjaneya Swamy statue is 16 ft tall.Hanumadh Malludu who was ruling the region had sever illness. Anjaneya Swamy appeared in his dream and told him that he is lying in the Kumudavathi river bed and asked him to construct the temple for the idol, which frees him from his illness. Later this temple was renovated by Vijayanagar kings.


During the Rama and Ravana war, Lakshmana will get hurt and lies unconscious from Meganadh serpent arrows. To bring Laxman back to conscious, Jambavan asked Hanuman to bring rare medical herbs, Sanjeevini, Vishalyakarini, Suvarnakarini, and Sandhani from Himalaya mountains. While on his mission, Anjaneya took the break to perform Sandhya Vandhanam at the bank of Kumudavathi. After finishing his prayers he began to leap again into the air. The Sages who were living on the banks of Kumudavathi requested Him to stay back. Anjaneya replied them that he is Rama's mission and should start immediately. Vellala in Telugu means Have to go, so the village got the name Vellala.
