Legend

It is believed that Lord Venkateswara first placed his Holy Foot here at Keelapatla and then reached Tirumala.[citation needed] The Myth believes that Saint Brughu kicked Lord Vishnu's chest and to eradicate such a sin, the Lord sent him to Earth and had him establish the Lord's idol in 7 different places. Some of these places are: 1. Dwaraka Tirupathi, near Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh 2. Kalyana Venkateshwara Swamy, Srinivasa Mangapuram, Andhra Pradesh 3. Konetiraya Swamy, Keelapatla, Andhra Pradesh 4. Diguva Tirupathi, Mulbagal, Karnataka etc..,[citation needed]

These places were hidden and the saint himself who went into disappearance by his mystical powers, were established much before the Lord himself came to the Earth. After Lords arrival, Brughu came into existence with Agasthya Maharshi, the mystical powers which hid these places were removed and they came into visible light of the common man. The idols were all under trees. The ruling kings then came forward to build temples around these idols.[citation needed]

The 15th-century Hindu saint, Andhra Pada kavitā Pitāmaha, Annamacharya mentions the name of Konetiraya in many of his sankeerthanas. "In past the temple was developed by Punganuru 'Jamindars', They were coming to the temple by punganoru-kallupalli-malleru-melumoi-kothapalli-keelapatla wise road. We don’t follow this route as it is still a soil road and not moterable. In Melumoi which is nearby were found a lot of copper coins of Punganur Jamindar's. Even Muslims worship Lord Sri Venkateswara as their beloved and Punganuru Samasthanam Jamindars who were Muslims had improved this temple."
