Ventrapragada is a village in Krishna District in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Ventrapragada is situated 30 km from Vijayawada and 9 km from Gudivada. The neighbouring villages are Kalavapamula, Mudunuru, Vanapamula, Cheruvukommu and Nandamuru. The famous ancient temple of Sri Nameswara Swamy (Lord Siva) is here. Nowhere else in the world is Lord Siva called with this name or has a temple with this name. The sivalingam in this temple has Namam (which is uncommon for Siva) and hence the name. It is told that the lingam is so long and deep-rooted that the end has not been found, but there is a well in the temple, the depth of which is said to be a measure of how deep the lingam was seen when it was first discovered.
