|The original temple
seems to have fallen into disuse, and one Yelamanchili Pullaji Panthulu reconstructed the
present temple in the year 1778 A.D.
At the time of
it e reconstruction of the temple certain modifications were effected and some more minor
deities were installed.
The Sastras enjoin the worship of the Panchayatanas consisting
of Aditya, Ambika, Vishnu, Ganesa and Maheswara.
One of the five beings made the principal deity, and the
remaining the subsidiary deities.
At Arasavalli, Lord Suryanarayana forms the central figure,
while the others occupy minor positions.
In addition an image of Indra has alsobeen installed here. The
temple is very famous for its great sanctity and holiness.
It is also very near to Srikakulam,thedistrict headquarters,
being only one mile off from it.
One has to get down at SrikakulamRailway Station which is a
main Station in the Madras - Calcutta route and which is very near Vizag.
