Sri Kurmam


Sri Kurmam is a Village near Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is located approximately 13 kilometers east of Srikakulam town near the sea. Sri Kurmam is located at latitude of 18° 16' N, longitude of 84° 1' E and an altitude of 17 meters (59 feet). It is in the Gara Mandal of Srikakulam district. This location puts the temple about half a mile offshore in the Bay of Bengal.

The natural beauty of the beach and its closeness to the town attracts tourists who often return to the quietness of the sea beach for the weekend. The beach is dowered with geographical features that are well suited for the visitors. The beach prevalently has a flat terrain. The slope of the Suryalanka Beach declines gradually into the sea which is convenient for those who prefer to engage in a casual stroll down the sea beach. The shore of the beach is wide and spacious. The Suryalanka Beach overlooks the crystal blue waters of the Bay of Bengal.

There is a Temple dedicated to Sri Kurma-natha, which is the second avatar of Lord Vishnu, Kurma-avatara (Tortoise). One unique feature of this temple is that it has Dhwajastambams in the front and back of the temple. That is because the deity faces the back of the temple on the west and hence the reason for another dhwajastambam.

This is the only temple of Kurmanatha in India. There is a YogAnandha Narasimhan temple in front of Sri Kurmam temple. Simhachalam Devasthanam adopted this temple for improvement. Temple of Hephaestus, an Doric Greek temple in Athens with the original entrance facing east, 449 BC (western face depicted). The moolasthanam (central piece) is considered to be very big Saligrama. The Turtle (kUrma) has earned an exclusive, known as Sri-kUrmam in the 'sampradAyam'. The 'image' is not a sculpture crafted by man, but the fossil of an actual (large-size) turtle, which must have paddled on to the 'kshEtram' where the shrine has been built.

According to inscriptions in the temple dated 1281 A.D, the holy place of Kürma-kshetra, was actually reestablished by Sri Ramanujacharya under the influence of Lord Jagannatha Deva at Jagannatha Puri. The Deity was worshiped by the Vaishnavas of the Madhvacharya Sampradäya. Some inscriptions are said to be written by Sri Narahari Teertha, who was in the disciplic succession of Madhvacharya. He later became the ruler of Kalinga Province and fought with the Sabaras, and saved the temple of Kürma. Narahari Tértha was a very religious and powerful king. He died in the Saka Era 1203. The temple was constructed and dedicated to the holy name of YogAnanda Narasimhadeva.

The site was first discovered by Gidugu Venkata Rama Murthy in 1919 AD. During excavations keepsakes coffins, four stupas, a Chaityagriha, structural emples and a number of sculptures reflecting the three phases of Buddhism - Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana were found dating back to about 2nd century B.C. to 12th century A.D. The statues of 'Tara' and 'Marichi' were discovered at this site and from here Buddhism spread to Sumatra and other far-eastern countries.

Kelshi is famous for at least two historic monuments, the Dargah of Yaqub Sarvari (who was the 11th spiritual leader of Shivaji) and Laxmi Mandir. Thus Kelshi is an evidence of Shivajai's tolerance for Muslims and that he was at war with Moghals and not Muslims as some people believe now.

Additionally, on the prop up of Kelshi many pre-historic objects (coins, pottery etc.) have been found. The letterings on these odd shape coins indicate that it must not been a full-fledge port.

Diveagar Beach

friends today we will see Diveagar Beach.

one of the beautiful beach in kokan. The beach is clean and beautiful as the beaches in the other Asian continent. There is no trace of any food stalls, no merry-go-round or the ferris wheel. And since it is not a very well known place, the beach is not crowded.

Apart from the beach, Diveagar’s claim to fame is the Pure Gold Ganpati Idol. This pure gold Ganpati idol belongs to the Peshwe era. It was hidden in a box and buried sometime during that period, probably to protect the idol and its precious ornaments from falling into the hands of the invaders. The box, with its precious contents lay hidden in a supari field till it was found in November 1997. It was a Sankashti day, when that box was found. Talk of coincidences! An old lady who owns the field found the box when she was digging around the supari tree. The place where she found the box has been converted into a small shrine, the Prakat sthan. The idol and the ornaments are kept in the village Ganpati temple.Traditional homes surrounded by coconut, banana and supari garden and simple people.
