Because of laughing of Parvathi Devi…….. During Dwapara Yugatham (Yuga End) while Parvathi Parameswarlu were sat at Kailasam, the disciples (Pradama Ganalu) were dancing. At that time, Parvathi laughed on seeing Nandeeswara. Thereupon, Nandeeswara called upon Parvathi Devi stating that Jagnmata…. why you laughed on seeling my son. Maharshi Silan questioned her, Then Ammavaru replied him in his dance, there is no Talam ambition and therefore, Siladhudu has become very much angry upon Parvathi Devi and also informed that during Kaliyuga, you will be born in Bhoolokam without marriage, you shall have a pregnancy and because of this, you faced so many criticisms. Then Parvathi Devi requested him to inform the Sapa Vimochana Marge. Thereupon, who told her that the Kamadhenu shall be born as a cow (Goomata) and that you have to worship her daily. You can have pregnant. During my dance, you stated to me that I am not perfect in dancing hence in your pregnancy, Nandeeswarudu shall be in uncomplete shape your pregnancy and thereupon, your people abused her that she got illegal pregnancy and that they born her and thereupon, she left her body and therefrom she shall become Ammavaru in the name of Nidanampati Ammavaru and shall be a Kongu Bangaram towards devotees.
Her brothers burned her, Parvathi Devi who burned as per burned about seven hundred years back in Guntur District, Palnad area to Yaganti Ramaiah because of sapam to her.

On knowing her pregnancy, the local persons, as well as parents, blamed her. Her brothers have come to the conclusion that her assassination shall be pollution for the bad name, One day when her parents are not in the house, her brothers called upon her to go over to their lands and asked her to step over the stored cotton and burnt the cotton munde.
