In the cultural history of Andhra Pradesh, Movva, an ancient temple village enjoys a special significance. The village is named after the local deity Movva Venugopala Swami, who was worshipped by the much praised Kshethrayya, a great composer of ”Khethrayya padas”, who hailed from this place. There are many places of historical and cultural significance in the vicinity of Movva, like Gantasala, Srikakalum, Pedakallepalli, Mopidevi etc. In Gantasala there are very famous Buddhist monuments. Kuchipudi, a small neighbouring village to Movva is acclaimed internationally for its Dance form.                  Vemuri Sundara Ramayya Government Degree College is situated in Movva village in Movva Mandal, Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh lies on the highway which connects “Diviseema’’ to Vijayawada, a city famous for its cultural, historical significance and Machilipatnam, the district Headquarters.
