Kanipakam Temple History:

According to the history of Sri Varasiddhi Vinayaka Swamy Temple, there were three brothers, each suffering with one deformity; one was dumb, another deaf and third one was blind. In spite of the difficulties, they worked on a small piece of land, cultivating it so as to earn their livings. One day when they were trying to get water from well using piccota system, they found out that the well had dried up. Hence, one of the brothers started digging the well for water and suddenly the iron implement hit a stone like structure. Later, they saw the blood oozing out from the well which made the entire water in the well to turn red. Brothers were shocked with the sight of blood in the well, as they witnessed the sight, they got rid of their deformities. As soon as the locals came to know about this miracle they tried to deepen the well further. Constantly they are trying to digging the well but they couldn’t do it as by then Lord Vinayaka’s idol had self-manifested itself, emerging out of the water of the well.

The temple was built in 11th century, during the period of Cholas by the Chola King Kulothunga Chola. It is built on the banks of River Bahuda, which also has a legend behind this temple. According to the legend, Sankha and Likitha, two brothers were going to Kanipakam to seek blessing of the Lord. During their journey, the younger brother Likitha, unable to bear his hunger plucked a mango from the mango grove and in spite of his elder brother’s advice ate the fruit. Seeing this, the elder brother informed the King, asking for the rightful punishment to his brother for sin he had committed. The king chopped off the both arms of Likitha as a punishment. When the two brothers reached Kanipakam and took a dip in its sacred waters near Kanipakam an amazing miracle happened, the younger brother regained both his arms. Since then, the river was named as Bahuda (“Bahu” means arms and “Da” means human giver).
