ARASAVALLI

Introduction

AT ARASAVALLI, which is practically the same as Srikakulam, the headquarters of the northernmost district of Andhra, there is a temple of Lord Surya.

Temples dedicated to the worship of Lord Surya are rare in our country.

Surya worship is not peculiar to the Hindus alone but is common even to theBuddhists who depict Marichi as an emanation of Dhyan - Buddha - Vairochana at the advent of early morning.

Marichi is depicted as a standing deity,with three faces, symbolic of morning, noon and the evening, on a chariot drawn by seven boars, and driven by a Goddess without legs, which is very similar to the Sun God of Hindus, who rides on a chariot drawn by seven horses.
