The temple of Goddess Kulagollamma is larger and more magnificent than the temples of many Hindu gods
. The origin of the Goddess is local in nature. In Sarvaia Palem, near Kavili there was a farmer who had a crop of the grain called ragi. Some one had come to buy grain one day and the farmer found that no matter how much he measured out, the ragi in did not decrease. He was wondering what had happened. He overturned the grain bin when a black stone fell out. When the possession came upon her she said that she is Kulagollamma who is the cause of his prosperity. The voice told to build a temple outside the village where she would not be able to hear the pounding of the grain. He would be blessed. If a temple is not built she will destroy him and his house and go to another place. He obeyed. Several buffaloes are beheaded while worshipping her.
Kulagollamma is the village goddess of Chakicherala, Kandukuru Taluq. Beneath the water pot a ring of grass or wattle twigs is placed called kudulla. One night an inmate of the village dreamed that he saw a goddess rising from the kudulla under a water pot in his house. She demanded that she should be worshipped. He thereafter began to worship. The local origin is a definite feature distinguishing these gods from those of Hinduism
