Brahmamgari Matham is a small village and mandal in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh. It is the same place where Sri Potuluri Veerabrahmam – also known as the ‘Nostradamus of India’ stayed. He entered Jeeva Samadhi in the year 1693.
The Brahmamgari Matham Temple was constructed after Sri Veerabrahmam entered into his Samadhi. There is nothing architecturally remarkable about the matham as such, but it is certainly a picturesque place where one can get glance about the life, times and the future predictions by Sri Veerabrahmam.
The main places to see in Brahmamgari Matham are the Navaratana Mandapam, the Brahmamsagar Reservoir, Narayana Swamy Ashramam and a couple of temples.
It is said that 500 years ago, Sri Veerabrahmendra Swami predicted that a temple would be built in Kandimallayapalle (Brahmamgari Mutt) in Kaliyuga before his arrival. Sri Patnala Sanyasi Rao, a businessman from Chennai, was destined to be the constructor of this temple at Brahmamgari Matham. The architectural style of this temple is termed as Navaratna, as nine temples are associated in one structure namely Sree Heramba Ganapathi Temple on South East corner, Manu Brahma (Shiva) temple with Adisakthi (Parvathi) is in the East, Maya Brahma (Vishnumurthi) with Parasakthi (Lakshmi) is in the South, Twastha Brahma (Chaturmukha Brahma) with Itcha Sakthi (Saraswathi) is to the West, Shilpi Brahma (Indra) with Kriyasakthi (Sachidevi) is at the North, Viswagna Brahma (Surya) with Gnanasakthi (Sanja Devi) is at Northeast, Vishwakarma (Veda Pitha) with Gayathri Deva (Veda Matha) is at the center, Venugopala Swamy temple at the Southwest, Sri Sanari Vishewswara Swamy at the northwest and 125 Gothra rishi idols are installed in the temple premises. Apart from that, a Veda Pathashala is also there in the temple premises.
Sri Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swamy Reservoir is the main part and source of the Telugu Ganga Irrigation project. Late NT Rama Rao laid the stone foundation of this reservoir. It has a capacity of 2 billion cubic meters. Being situated among the lush green hills and serene atmosphere, the reservoir has become a popular tourist destination in recent times. AP Tourism also operates boating here for tourists.
Bommu’s family members established the Narayana Swamy temple in Obularaju Palle. This village was submerged in the Brahmamsagar Reservoir in 2005 due to extreme floods. Bommu family members then started a registered trust and began re-constructing the temple. In 2008, t Garbhagudi, the main area where Narayana Swamy’s Idol is present, was completed. It is expanding since then. Every year Swami Utsava is celebrated here.
