Chandole is well known for its history and culture. Its history takes back us past 400 years.

The name of the town Chandole echoes with the name of a prominent spiritual personality and a Vedic scholar Sri Tadepalli Raghavanarayana Saastri who lived here for entire life. Subrahmanya Saastri a disciple of Chandole Rishi has written Pita Putra Kavisvarulu-Chandolu Maharashulu.[2] His another disciple late Cheruvu Satyanaarayana Saastri has also written a similar text namely, Pitaputra Kavicharitramu in Telugu on Chandole Saastri.[3] Neelamraju Venkata Seshaiah, formerly an editor of Andhra Prabha, a renowned Telugu daily published from The Indian Express group that time, offered a couple of instances that explained the spiritual heights Chandole Rishi ascended during his lifetime in his famous book published in Telugu namely Nadiche Devudu.[4]
