There are two famous Temples in Sullurpet. Goddess Chengalamma Parameswari manifested Herself in the village of Sullurupet which is 100 km from Nellore on the Kolkata-Chennai highway. The temple was built on the bank of the Kanlangi river during the 4th and 5th centuries. People also refer to the Goddess as "Tenkali". With the passage of time, she is being worshipped regularly by devotees as Chengalamma. Alghu Malluru Krishnaswamy temple is existing in the Mannarpoluru village, right from the time of Telugu Chola rulers. The village is near Sullurupet and located at a distance of 103 km from Nellore. It was built in the 17th century by Bangaru Yadama Nayudu. According to a legend, it was here that Lord Sri Krishna defeated Jambavantha in a duel and married his daughter Jambavati. Apart from the idol of Satyabhama and Jambavati, the two consorts of Lord Krishna, the idol of Jambavantha that creates the illusion of shedding tears, amazes the visitors.
