History 

Kuravi Veerabhadra Swamy temple was 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 traveller, referred to the temple as 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 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 and fulfils their wishes. Dwajasthambham of the temple is very powerful with Shakthi Yantra in those days. People who hug the Dwajasthambham must only speak the truth.
