It is well aware that yellapu families have worshipped the mother Goddess. In the initial days of Rajasthan and Gujarat days, they worshipped the vageshwari matha. After entering the Telangana, they worshipped velpulamma.
There is presence of velpula families in yellapu community is observed their presence in Karimnagar, Warangal and karimnagar district. Zafargadh was earlier known as velpugonda. There is presence of palu velpula /pali velpula village near Hanumakonda on the way to karimnagar. It clarified the presence of yellapu families in those areas.
Now let's know the meaning of velpula.
Velpula means God or Goddess. In this instant case of yellapu families, it is Goddess. These families might be priests among this yellapus, especially at the time of war. They would have invoked the God to make their army regiment psychologically stronger and make them enthusiastic for war. Such sacred practices were present also amongst velamas.Also to save the Hindhu religion from the onslaught of other religions ,certain priest classes were created in many castes including yellapus.
In 2017, i was transferred to Ramagundam corporation as commissioner. Here i observed the temples of velpulamma and elpamma. I thought velpulamma is corrupted to elapamma . It can be further corrupted to elapamma .
My analysis is as follows on corruption of velpulamma;
Velpulamma >elpulamma>elpamma >elapamma >ellapamma >yellapamma >vellapamma >yellapamma.
The devotees of yellapamma were called yellapu community. This is one of the genesis of yellapu families.
This genesis proves that yellapu families have worshipped the mother Goddess velpulamma and qualified for being kakatiyas and polavasa kings. They lived in karimnagar and warangal districts in medieval period.
