History of Jamalapuram Temple:
Foundation of the temple is, Jabali Maharshi is a master of Lord Sri Rama. Multi-day, he came to Jamalapuram and attracted by the magnificence of nature. So he stayed and did repentance for Lord on Soochi Giri Hill. One fine day Lord Vishnu remained before his eye and favoured him. As the priest wanted, Lord turns into an icon in his place as Sri Venkateswara’s symbol.
After quite a while, the individual called Yagnanarayana Sharma took rest here while his tour to Kashi and felt a mysterious slope. He then realised the connection with these slopes and trees each night. Yagnanarayana felt, he has some association with this place and choose to be live for quite a while. Lord Venkateswara has come as a kid and played with cattlemen every day. If anyone asks his name and place, the kid used to answer as your name is my name and your place is my place.
