Mopidevi Subrahmanyeswara Swamy Temple is located in the village of Mopidevi, Krishna District in Andhra Pradesh. Here Sri Subramanya Swamy is in the form of Lingam (Shiva Lingam).
According to a legend or Sthala Purana, the Lingam is a self manifested (Swayambhu) one. Veeravarapu Parvathalu, who was a potter, was a great devotee. Pleased with his devotion the Lord once came in his dream and asked him to dig up the anthill to find his Lingam in the village of Mopidevi. Parvathalu told about his dream to the villagers and dug up the anthill at the place indicated in his dream. Surprisingly, they found the Lingam which was placed on the anthill and they began to worship. He prepared the idols of Horse, Nandi, Cock and Garuda which are very dear to Lord Subramanya Swamy with clay.. He prepared the idols and baked them in the Bhatti ( furnace) in such a fashion that they never lost their original forms.
