Kuravi Veerabhadra Swamy temple built during 900 AD by Bheema Raju of the Vengi Chalukya Dynasty. After that, renovation is taken up by Kakatiya King Betharaju-I. Marco Poli, the famous traveler referred to the temple as it is the capital of the Vengi Chalukya Dynasty. There is a witness that Kakatiya Veeranari Rudramadevi performed Pooja and offered Ratnas to God.
When Kuravi Village was in trouble with the destroyers, Veerabhadra himself came to protect the residents. People say that Veerabhadra comes in a Human form, plays and sings with the villagers, and disappear. People believe that Veerabhadra removes all the obstacles coming and make their wishes fulfilled. Dwajasthambham of the temple is very powerful with Shakthi Yantra in those days. People who hug the Dwajasthambham must only speak the truth.
