Kancharla Gopanna, popularly known as Bhakta Ramadasu or Bhadrachala Ramadasu, was an ardent devotee of Lord Rama. He lived in the 17th Century C.E (Current Era) and composed around 200 Keertanas (songs) on Rama in Telugu language. He constructed Sita Ramaswamy temple at Bhadrachalam during his tenure as Tahsildar of the place.

In his composition 'Idigo Bhadradri' he describes the magnificence of Bhadrachalam temple.

Idigo Bhadradri Gautami adigo choodandi - 2
mudamuto Sita mudita Lakshmanulu kalisi koluvaga Raghupati yundedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Charu swarna prakara gopura dwaramulato sundaramai yundedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Anupamaanamai atisundaramai danaru chakramu dhaga dhaga merisedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Kaliyugamanduna ilavaikunthamu nalaru (vaikunthamuna + alaru) chunnadi nayamuga mrokkedi

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Ponnala pogadala poo podarindlanu chennu meegadanu srungarambadu

Idigo Bhadradri .......

Srikaramuga Ramadasunu prakatamuga broche prabhu vasamu 

Idigo Bhadradri .......
