Veereswara Swamy Temple Murumalla
 

The village Muramalla is a major panchayat located in the I.Polavaram Mandal of the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. It is at a distance of 38 km to the south of Kakinada city on the National Highway No.214. One has to travel a distance of 32 km to reach Yanam town and then proceed further for about 6 km to reach the village on the banks of the river Gautami, which is a distributary of the river Godavari. The village is also at a distance of 25 km from Amalapuram town. Pin Code of the village is 533220.

The ancient temple of Lord Veereswara Swamy and Goddess Bhadrakali is located in this village. The people all around believe that if a person who is not married visits the temple just for once he or she will get a suitable proposal for marriage at the earliest. Similarly, childless couples also pray at this temple so that they may be blessed with children.

Lord Brahma performed a yajna (Vedic ritual of fire sacrifice) to please Shakti and Shiva. Goddess Shakti emerged, separating from Shiva and helped Brahma in the creation of the universe. Brahma decided to give Shakti back to Shiva. Therefore his son Daksha performed several yagnas to obtain Shakti as his daughter in the form of Sati. It was then decided that Sati was brought into this world with the motive of getting married to Shiva.

However, due to Lord Shiva's curse to Brahma that his fifth head was cut off due to his lie in front of Shiva, Daksha started hating Lord Shiva and decided not to let Lord Shiva and Sati get married. However, Sati got attracted to Shiva and finally one day Shiva and Sati got married. This marriage only increased Daksha's hatred towards Lord Shiva.

Daksha performed a yagna with a desire to take revenge on Lord Shiva near munimandala present Muramalla andhra pradesh. Daksha invited all the deities to the yajna except Lord Shiva and Sati. The fact that she was not invited did not deter Sati from attending the yagna. She expressed her desire to attend the yagna to Shiva, who tried his best to dissuade her from going. Shiva eventually relented and Sati went to the yagna. Sati, being an uninvited guest, was not given any respect at the yagna. Furthermore, Daksha insulted Shiva. Sati was unable to bear her father's insults toward her husband, so she immolated herself.

Enraged at the insult and the injury, Shiva in Virabhadra avatar destroyed Daksha's yagna, cut off Daksha's head, and later replaced it with that of a male goat as he restored him to life.Virabhadra didn't stop fighting he kept raging with anger .gods prayed lord vishnu.he came there and started fighting him. Still immersed in grief, Shiva picked up the remains of Sati's body, and performed the Tandava, the celestial dance of destruction, across all creation. The other Gods requested Vishnu to intervene to stop this destruction, towards which Vishnu used the Sudarshana Chakra, which cut through the Sati's corpse. The various parts of the body fell at several spots all through the Indian subcontinent and formed sites which are known as Shakti Peethas today.even today we can see the temple of veereswara swamy i.e., Virabhadra & lord vishnu as narasimha avatar
