Temples of Khammam District, Andhra Pradesh
The different temples of Khammam district echo the religious importance of the place.
 
 Bhadrachalam Rama TempleThe place Khammam has been derived from the name of a temple ‘Narasimhadri’, later ‘Stambha Sikhari’ and finally it was termed as ‘Stambhadri’. The vertical rock under the temple is known as ‘Kamba’. This very evidence shows the importance laid on temple architecture in this district. Khammam can be called a tribal land with stress laid on the agrarian sector. However, the fact remains that temples and pilgrim tours are considered significant for god-fearing devotees, who visit places like- Jeellacheruvu, Lord Shiva Temple-Kallur, Lord Venugopal Swamy Temple, Peddama Thalli Temple, Sree Seetharamachandra Swamy temple, Sri Lalitha Maha Tripura Sundari Temple. The places of Jamalpuram and Parnashala are considered extremely holy sites for the Hindus. While some of them were built in ancient times of 12th or 14th centuries, some were built in recent times by prominent people holding fundamental positions. Lord Shiva dominates in almost all the shrines, with a few exceptions. The temple structures were mostly of stone.
