 Nelakondapalli is known for its historic glory. At a distance of one mile from Nelakondapalli, the Mandal Headquarters, there are certain archaeological glimpses known as Virataraju dibba and Keechaka Gundam claiming importance in the days of Mahabharatha. Virata Raju was the king of Virata Nagaram and it was under him that the Pandavas worked incognito after their twelve years of exile in the forests. Keechaka, the brother-in-law of Virata who tried to misbehave with Draupadi, the wife of Pandavas, was killed by BHEEMASENA, working in disguise as a cook (VALALUDU). The old Relics unearthed at these places strengthen the belief that this place was noted as far back the days of Mahabharata. Some Buddhist Stupas and idols found in the excavations in 1977 had further supported the belief that this district had mythological and historical past. Nelakondapalli is also famous of being the Birth Place of Kancharla Gopanna, popularly known as Bhakta Ramadas. There are some very ancient temples also in the village. The old Residence of Bhakta Ramadas was named as Bhakta Ramadas Dhyana Mandir and its currently maintained by Bhadrachala Devastanam with the co-operation of local people. .(by Pendyala Sridhar
