ANIVILLI TEMPLE:

In the midst of the lush - green fields of the River Godavari the Konaseema area reminds one of the sanctity and sacred feeling described in the Vaastu Sastra. In this area of Konaseema is AINAVILLI, where the "SIDDI VINAYAKA TEMPLE" is situated. Before performing Daksha Yagna Daksha Prajapati was supposed to have performed puja of Vinayaka at this place for its successful completion. This is written in the "KSHETRA PURANA" of this place.

There is another story that Vyasa Maharshi, during the beginning of his tour of the South, had installed the Son of Parvati at this place and this age - old "SIDDI VINAYAKA" is reputed to fulfill the wishes of his devotees.

In a spacious, elevated area, this temple of Vinayaka stands with idol facing South. With two gopurams and gates, one can approach Vinayaka from the south and Sri Visveswara Swamy from the East.

 

ANTERVEDI :

Also known as "Dakshina Kashi (Kashi of the South), Antarvedi, is an important pilgrim centre in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh state in India, situated at the interior part at East coast. Lord Brahma, in order to get freed from the sins he had committed against Lord Sankara, had performed Rudrayaga and installed Lord Neela kantheswara there. As that place was made a stage or "Vedik" to perform the Yagam, it was named as "ANTARVEDI" It is a small village in Sakhinetipalle Mandal which is located close to Narsapur near the Bay of Bengal Coast and Vashishtha River. This river is said to have been brought by Maharishi Vashishtha, one of the Sapthrishis(seven great sages) of Hindu Mythology. It draws people from far off places throughout the year because of its unique rarity: the confluence or mergence of Bay of Bengal and Vashishtha River, a tributary of River Godavari. The place of confluence where the mighty ocean Bay of Bengal meets the Vashishtha River is called the "Sapta Sagara Sangam Pradesam" and also as "Anna Chelli Gattu". One can even taste the water here as it is not salty but quite

The temple is called as an island temple because of its confluence. This temple is among the rarities as the main Deity i.e. Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy(one of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu) who faces towards West instead of East (usual direction of other temples in India) constructed between the 15th and 16th centuries. This is 32 kshetra of 108 Narashima kshetrams. It is a temple of 5 storeyed Vimana Gopuram. As one enters the temple one can Garuda on one side and Bhaktha Anjaneya on the other side of temple entrance. While approaching "Garbha Gudi" (Sanctum Sanctorum) one can see an adorable "Vatapatra Sayi" (Lord Krishna on a palm leaf) on its roof. The idol is made from a single stone. In the Garbha Gudi, one can have a darshan of the magnificient Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy with his Consort Goddess Lakshmi Devi on his lap.

ANTERVEDI

After the darshan, one has to go around the sanctum, as there are different deities. On the east side of the prakaram(wall), is Goddess Rajyalakshmi and Lord Venkateshwara, to the north side is Bhoodevi and Ranganadha Swamy, to the west side of the prakaram is Santhana Gopala Swamy and Keshava Swamy, and finally to the south side of the prakaram is the Acharyas and Alwars sannidhi(small temples) and Chaturbhuja (four-armed) Anjaneya. Apart from the presiding Deity, Lord Narasimha Swamy, there are also Deities of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. A temple of Neelakanteshwara (Lord Shiva) is also present which is located at the other side, almost nearer to the bank of Godavari, also called, Vasishta Godavari is a must see. This deity was installed by Lord Sri Rama and is said to be worshipped by Brahma himself.

 

sweet!!!! Unbelievable but true!!! This place is the last and the most important of the seven sacred bathing places. It is popularly believed that the Tretha Yugam episode of Ksheera Sagara Mathanam took place here

 

 

RAYALI:

"Ryali" in telugu means falling. According to the legend "Bhagavatam" the Devatas and Rakshas were quarrelling over sharing of holy Devine nectar.Seeing this, "Sri Maha Vishnu" came to the rescue of Devatas in the guise of Mohini (a beautiful woman) and convinced both the rivalry groups promising to distribute holy Devine nectar in equal share to Devatas and Rakshas. But in the interest of universal peace the Devine nectar was distributed among Devatas alone and after which Mohini disappeared. Lord Siva happened to see the fascinating beauty of Mohini. He chased her for getting for a while in the presence of his consort Parvathi Devi. As he was chasing her, flower from the plait of Mohini fell down and was smelt by Lord Siva. He surprisingly found "Sree Maha Vishnu" in the form of Mohini and felt shy for his behavior. The place where the flower from the plait of Mohini fell was named as RYALI.

BICCAVOLO TEMPLE:

Biccavolu contains about six temples built by Eastern Chalukyas out of which, the temple of Lord Golingeshwara is the biggest. This is one of the beautiful temples built during those times. It has a wealth of iconographic material, as all around it, and a beautiful Shivalingam and 33 lines Shasanam on the door jambs. The striking Garbha Gudi(sanctum sanctorum), the Antaralas (passages), the Mukha Mandapams (main hall) and other Mandapams adds to the beauty of the temple. As you enter the temple, there is a Mandapam that leads you to Mukha Mandapam. The Mandapam has a small shrine to its southern entrance. The Mukha Mandapam walls are decorated with pilasters (ornamental and structural columns) and screens and it houses three small shrines. In the Mukha Mandapam, there are two masterpieces- one is the figure of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi in the form of Alingana Chandra Sekhara Murthy and the other is that of Lord Ganesha in a seated posture. There is a narrow passage between the Mukha Mandapam and another Mandapam. As you go further you enter the Antarala of the temple, which is a bit narrow and

devoid of any decoration. This Antarala leads you to the Garbha Gudi (sanctum sanctorum) of Golingeshwara Swamy Temple. The idol in the sanctum sanctorum is a Shiva Lingam made of black granite. The walls of the sanctum sanctorum are decorated with Kostas that has sculptures, recesses and projections with pilasters. The Kostas are surmounted by Makaratoranams . The pillars on the wall have simple brackets capitals. Above the capital is a row of dwarfs and just above it there is a Kapota adorned with Simhalalata gables. Beyond this, there is a row of superb carvings in series. The Vimana (temple tower) above the Garbha Gudi contains a row of pillars and row of beams that ends at its base. Above this you can find twelve beam heads, two steps and a narrow Gala. Above the Gala is a Nagara Shikharam with a gable on each

side. Above this, is a striking Kalasham placed in a double lotus. All in all, this temple takes you back in times when the temple was at the peak of glory. Truly grand isn’t it
