Sanjeevaraya Swamy Vellala Sthalapuranam
During the Rama and Ravana war, Lakshmana will get hurt and lies unconscious from Meganadh (Ravana’s Son) serpent arrows. To bring Laxman back to conscious, Jambavan asked Hanuman to bring rare medical herbs, Sanjeevini, Vishalyakarini, Suvarnakarini, and Sandhani from Himalaya mountains.
While on his mission, Anjaneya took a break to perform Sandhya Vandhanam (Prayer offered to Sun God during Sunset) at the bank of Kumudavathi. After finishing his prayers he began to leap again into the air. The Sages who were living at the banks of Kumudavathi requested Him to stay back. Anjaneya replied to them that he is Rama’s mission and should start immediately. Vellala in Telugu means Have to go, so the village got the name Vellala.
