Santana Venugopal Swamy Temple is located in the village of Chinoor in the Nagireddy Pet Mandal in the Kamareddy District.
700 years ago in the dream of King Gary, who ruled the region during the reign of the Nijam kings, a man in the form of Bhagwat appeared in the pool at the end of the village in the form of an idol of Venugopal Swami and told him to find it and build a temple. The next day the king ordered his army to visit the pool and search there. After much effort they found a beautiful two and a half foot Venu Gopala Swami idol with their Rukmini and Satyabhamala.
According to local mythology, the idols of Sri Sudarshan Perumal and Srimannarayana were found along with the idols of the Swami and the king built a magnificent temple and erected the idols of Swami, along with the idols of Nammalwar and Bhagwad Ramanuja. According to the Agama Sastras, the worship of the Swami and the activities on the special festivals are very beautiful and a festival of the eyes.
Devotees have always believed that whoever worships the Swami in this temple will give them good offspring. Swami’s marriage takes place in the glory of the genitals. Devotees believes that the wishes of those who participate in Swami’s marriage ceremony will be fulfilled.
