History of Sri Polamamba Temple

According to legend, fishermen in the Jalaripeta area once caught the Goddess’s idol in a fishing net. They took the idol to the beach and began praying to it. After a few years, the Goddess appeared in one of the devotees’ dreams and requested that her idol be given to a Maddi family from the Pedda Waltair area.

The Goddess’s idol was placed beneath a “Karaka” tree. Hence the goddess is called as “Karaka Chettu Polamamba”.In Garbhalaya, there are three idols installed in the temple.The first is Kunchamamba, who is a manifestation of Lakshmi Devi, the second is Polamamba, who is a manifestation of Durga Devi, and the third is Neelamamba Devi, who is a manifestation of Saraswathi Devi.
