Peruru Saraswati Devi Temple in Peruru Village of Medak Dist, Andhra Pradesh has ancient history . This temple is famous for the large Vibuthi shrine that is available near the temple. TV9 ran a story about the naturally available vibuthi found near the temple premises. This Vibuthi is believed to be very sacred and very pure. History dates back to 5250 years back where in Dwapara Yuga, a King named Parikshith ruled this particular area. King Parikshith feels humiliated after a muni by name Samikamahamuni who is in a deep meditation doesn't wish the king. So the king picks up a dead snake and ties it to the neck of Muni. Shrungi, Muni's son gets angered by this act and curses that the person who is responsible for this act will die in 7 days. Soon, King Parikshith dies in the hands of Takshak. So, to take revenge against his father's death, Janamejayudu performs Mahasarpayagam in 108 kundalis to kill Naga dynasty. This Mahasarpayagam was performed near by Peruru Village. Many snakes get killed during this yagam. In order to save the snake dynasty Vasuki pleads to Lord Brahma to save them. Lord Brahma says that if Ganga is sprinked on dead snakes, the dead snakes will come back to life. So, Garuthmanthudu goes to patalam and gets Ganga which is of name Bhogavathi. Since, this ganga is brought by Garuthmanthudu, this Ganga is called as " GARUDA GANGA ". Sri Saraswathi Devi statue is installed on the east side of this Garuda Ganga river. The temple premises has the idols of Sri Saraswati Devi and Nagadevatha.


The ashes of the yagam from 108 kundalis called as Vibuthi is considered to be available on the banks of Garuda Ganga River or Manjira River. This Vibuthi is very natural and considered to be very sacred. Vibuthi is available naturally from large vibuthi basin only at Peruru Village. This place has a history of about 5250 years.
