On one Shubha Muhurtha, Sri Ramakrishnaiah approached, His Highness, The Suvarna Kankana Dharana,Sri Sri.TAKKELLAPATI PHANIBHOOSHANACHARYULU.

Sri Phani Bhooshanachary, On Shubha muhurtha did the sthala pariksha and started the architecture planning for the temple. ramakrishnayya, arranged everything for the smooth construction of the temple. Shiva deeksha paritha Phani bhooshanachary, by concentrating on Lord shiva, starte sculpting the temple and it went on for the next 6 months.

Sri Ramakrishnayya has arranged 40 sacks of rice, 30 cartons of pure ghee for Brahmana samaradhana and invited 40 vaidika and niyogi Brahmanas for the prana prathishta.
To look after Ramakrishnayyas rice mill accounting works and his financial matters, he had a Gumastha ( accountant) by name Gullapalli Subbarayudu,a Niyogi brahmin.
(Please note that at this period of 1920 years,There used to be many silly teasings by brahmins towards Vishwakarmas questioning the brahmanatvam of Vishwakarma Brahmins))
Subbarayudu, Called 200 Niyogi & vaidic brahmins, from the near by villages to come to kolasapaadu on the day before prana prathishta.All the 200 niyogis came in to the temple and were standing infront of it. Sri Phani bhooshanachary, as the next day was the prana prathishta,was busy with the yagna yagadi homagundam preparation, and not looked at these huge crowd coming in to the temple. Ramakrishnayya,went to tte near by villages to invite his relatives for the vigraha pratishta.All the 200 niyogi & Vaidic brahmins rushed in to the temple.Chadavalada Venkaiah, a Vaidic Brahmin, Caught the neck of Phani bhooshanachary, and started pulling bhooshanachary's yagnopaveetham forcibly, and said:::: bhooshanachary, you Vishwakarma,Never again dare to step in to any temple for doing the Vigraha Pratishta, Never do this mistake again by stepping in temple. Ikkada evaro oka brahmanuniki Tappudu tambulam ichhi tappu oppuko.......
bhooshanachary, who was in Shiva deeksha until the prana prathishta was helpless and got bewildered by looking at Subbarayudu, who was one among them.One of the Brahmin forcibly put the betal leaves, a sum of 5 rupees and some nuts, in bhooshanachary hands and asked to give the tappudu tambulam to Subbarayudu. Subbarayudu, He himself dragged the tambulam from bhooshanachary hands and started laughing at him. 200 brahmins teased Bhooshanachary and left the temple.
Some how, This news went to Ramakrishnayya wife, and she rushed to the temple. Bhooshanachary was seated on the floor, with his cloths torn, Sthanabramsha yagnopaveetha, and tears filled eyes. Ramakrishnayya wife fell at the legs of Bhooshanachary and asked for apologies, and she rushed to her husband and explained the humiliation to the sculptors done by the niyogi & vaidics along with subbarayudu
Ramakrishnayya, called his men from the near by villages.Every body waited until the next morning. As the next day was prana prathista, Every body came to the village and also the 200 niyogi & Vaidic brahmin families. Ramakrishnayya and his men, Invited the 200 Brahmins in to seperate anna dana satra room, closed the doors. Ramakrishnayya, jumped in to the room in anger, with a folded rope in his hand and ordered his men to tie the 200 brahmins to the poles. ramakrishnayya, in anger shouted at them and started saying, You Brahmanas, whos plan was this??? and why you all did this??? The brahmins started shivering by looking at the angry Ramakrishnayya and they told that it was Subbarayudu plan to degrade and humiliate the Vishwakarma sculptor. Subbarayudu and chadalavada venkaiah, Questioned the brahmatvam of Vishwakarmas, for doing the prana pratishta.
In the Debate, His Highness, Sri Phani bhooshanacharyulu, Showed the Vedic References, about Lord Vishwakarma, and pancha Brahma Gothra pravara, Pancha rishis vrutti and their arrogant mouths were shut. They accepted the Brahmanatvam of Vishwabrahmins and all the 200 brahmins feliciated the Vishwakarma sculptor phanibhooshanacharyulu.
Sri ramakrishnayya, ordered the brahmins to keep 10 rupees in betal leaves with nuts and take the Rettimpu tappudu tambulam From bhooshanachary towards the mistake done by them. Brahmins fell to bhooshanachary feet and took thhe tambulam.
