Culture

Tadipatri has two notable temples within the town, the Sri Chintala Venkata Ramana Swamy temple and the Sri Bugga Rama Lingeswara Swamy temple. The sthala puranam, or local history, says that these two temples were built in a day by two brothers. The Chintala Venkata Ramana Swamy temple was completed by the next morning but the Bugga Rama Lingeswara Swamy temple wasn't complete. The belief is that had this temple been completed it would have been 'Dakshina Kaashi', or Kaashi of the South. The architecture of these two temples is largely Dravidian and reflects the Vijayanagara style.Tadipatri got its name from Tatipatri which means garden of palm trees. Another version is that Tataki, a demon lady who tried to kill Sreeram on his way to save the yaga of Viswamitra but was killed by Sreeram at this very place and hence the name.
