During my one-day stay in Srikakulam I could not see many temples. Just before leaving that place I went to see this local temple located beside the old road bridge. Going through the narrow lane we saw this temple just beside the banks of the Nagavali River. On the way we also came across the River View park with children’s playground and animal models. This park was built in 1999 with the M.P. funds sanctioned by the erstwhile M.P. Late Sri Yerram Naidu.

During my one-day stay in Srikakulam I could not see many temples. Just before leaving that place I went to see this local temple located beside the old road bridge. Going through the narrow lane we saw this temple just beside the banks of the Nagavali River. On the way we also came across the River View park with children’s playground and animal models. This park was built in 1999 with the M.P. funds sanctioned by the erstwhile M.P. Late Sri Yerram Naidu.

The temple from the outside appeared to be an ordinary one without much artistic sculptures. But it has got mythological significance.

Lord Balarama travelled towards south at the time of Mahabharata war as he wished not to take sides and fight in the war. When he came to Dandakaranya near the Bay of Bengal, he saw people suffering from drought and harassed by the demon Pralambasuti. To save the people from the demon and the drought, he killed Pralambasuti and dug with his plough (called nagali in Telugu) and made a river flow which is called “Nagavali”. The Nagavali River flows from Kalahandi (Orissa) and flows through Rayagad and Koraput districts of Orissa and Srikakulam and Vijayanagaram districts of Andhra Pradesh and joins the Bay of Bengal at Kallepalli near Mapasubandaru village in Srikakulam Diustrict. He also set up five Shiva temples so that people may seek the permission of Shiva to see the Lord Kurmanatha in Srikurmam. Before that only gods used to worship at Srikurmam temple. These Shiva temples are called Pancha Linga Kshetras. They are: Payakeshwara Swamy in Rayagad(orissa), Someswara Swamy at Gumpa village near Parvatipuram, Sangameswara Swamy near Rajam, Uma Rudra Koteswara Swamy in Srikakaulam and Mani Nageswara swamy at Kallepalli village near the bay of Bengal. Balarama built the fifth temple (Patala Siddeswara Swamy) in front of the Kurmanatha Swamy temple.
Sri Uma Ruidra Koteswara Swamy temple is the Kshetrapalika temple on the western border of Srikurmam temple. Another legend says that Lord Indra’s pride was humbled by Nandi when he tried to enter the temple by force after it was closed. Nandi hurled him with such power that Indra fell down exhausted and weak. He prayed to Lord Surya to give him relief from the pain. Surya touched him with his healing rays and made him recover his strength. Indra requested him to stay there and give relief to people. Surya directed him to find out his idol at the place where Lord Indra fell. Indra dug the place and got the Surya idol and constructed a temple for Surya. This place is called Harasavalli (later called Arasavalli). Indra also dug a lake with his Vajra near the temple and it is called Indra Pushkarini. Indra worshipped Lord Umarudra later to get relief from his sins. Thus there is close connection between Arasavalli temple and Uma Rudreswara Temple.

This temple was built with Salihundam red stine in South Indian style. Pujas in this temple are done as per Panchayatana Agama Sastra tradition. This temple was first built by Lord Balarama five thousand years ago. Later it was re-built by Magatapalli Kamayya Setti of Konada village, Vijayanagaram Dist. in 1774. Since 2001, renovations are being done by Samkrg Pistons (a local factory) and Krushnam Vande Jagadgurum (a local spiritual organization). In the Mukha mandapa we can see a very big and beautiful statue of Nandi . In the inner sanctum there is a big idol of Shiva in Linga form. There is a shrine for Shiva’s consort Rajarajeswari in the Mukha mandapa just on the left side of the sanctum.

The temple was very much crowded when we went there. Special poojas are done here on Mondays and during Kartika month and on Maha Shiva Ratri festival. The temple timings are from 6.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. and from 5.00 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. if you visit Srikurmam take time to see this important Shiva temple also.
