Yellam Palli is located besides Cherlo Palli which is near to Gurram Konda ( near to Madana Palli town) in Chittor ( Dt)., A.P. India. 300 years back in Yellam Palli one former was there. His name is Rami Reddy and his wife name is Nagamma. They were very kind to poor people and used to help them always. They had 2 sons & 1 daughter. Daughter’s name is our so called amma – Reddamma. She was very Beautiful. All the people in that village are very affectionate , and had resepects with little Reddamma.
Rami Reddy will be very busy with land works and Naggamma will be busy in respecting the guests and helping the poor people. Our little Reddamma has no work so she used to go forming lands and stands on the ladder to send away the birds who makes the land dirty by throwing stones. In the evening times she helps her mother Nagamma in home maid works.
One day our little Reddamma was throwing stones to send away the birds. The “Navab” ( King) of the Gurram Konda was going on that way and saw the beautiful Reddamma. He told his soldiers to bring her. The Soldiers went to brought her. Reddamma saw the soldiers coming towards her. She afraid and took ran. She ranaway too far. Without leaving the soldiers are also coming back of her. She ran again and saw one big hill in front of her. She did not have another option to run. She thought that only god can save her.” Hey lord Siva & goddess Parvathi please save me” she shouted. Immediately the earth shaked , big light came in the sky and the hill got a crack in the middle. Reddamma entered in that crack. For that big sound and light all soliders fell down from the horses and stones. One soldier saw this entire incident. He went back and informed same to the Navab. Without making any noice the Navab went to his home.
This news spread all over the village. Rami Reddy, Nagamma, their two sons & daughter In-Laws cried al lot. All the village people went to Rami Reddy’s house. That night no one slept including the animals. same night Reddamma came in the dream of nagamma and told that no need to worry for her and she is in the hill. Nagamma told this dream to all village people. In the morning all the people went to the hill and prayed bala Reddamma to save them. From that day she became Goddess.
300 years are over till now Sri Bala Reddamma Thalli is saving all the devotees. Especially she is very kind to childless couples. Childless woman has to go Sri Reddamma Konda for 3 Sundays continuously and prays Sri Reddamma Thalli to bless with children. Almost all the women is blessed. In some cases doctors also cannot do anything but with the blessing of Sri Reddamma Thalli they got children. Some couples after 20 years of their married life they got children after worshipping goddess Reddamma Thalli.
