About Sri Swayambhu Lakshmi Venkateswara Swamy Temple
Sri Swayambhu Lakshmi Venkateswara Swamy Temple is located in Gudeballore of Mahabubnagar District. The deity here is Lord Venkateshwara Swamy.
The village Gudeballore is earlier called as Gundilapuram. It is believed that Lord Venkateshwara Swamy along with Lakshmi Devi came to this hill to fulfill the desire of Mandavya Maharshi.
The history about the temple that is in the belief was that once when Mandavya Maharshi was on his way to the Brahmotsavam in Tirupathi, he got a message from the God while he was about to cross the overflowing Krishna river. It seems that God had asked him to stay back in Gundilapuram. The message was clear that he would have the vision of God in this land itself. So the maharshi stayed back and did tapasya for 8 months feeding only on cow’s milk being given by the cowherd keepers of the land. At the end of this period the maharshi got the blessings of Lord Venkateshwara Swamy and Lakshmi Devi when they appeared in his vision.
That day onwards, the Chaitra Masa Brahmotsavam are conducted annually for a period of 15 days from Chaitra Padyami to Pournima. The puja in this festival is carried out by the Golla or the Gwala family members who had fed the maharshi.
This festival is celebrated mostly by the farmers, agriculturists and the milkmen. People come here with their agricultural equipment’s and bullock carts to seek the blessing of the Lord as there is a belief that it is for the existence of the almighty here that the land is flourished with good crop every year and is protected from any natural calamities.
