DRAKSHARAMA

Two Dutch tombs also stand in the village in what is called "Olland Dibba" (Holland Mound). The tombs are dated 1675 and 1728 and are covered with the sculptured slabs which are characteristic of Dutch tombs. There are many important festivals in the temple like the Devi Navaratri, Kalyanam and Mahasivarathri. The most important festival is in the month of Magha and lasts five days beginning on the Ilth day after the Amavasya. There are a number of choultries in this place in which pilgrims can conveniently stay. This religious Place, formerly called Taksha Tapovanam, or Taksha Vatika, and which Vedavyasa, which event is still commemorated by an annual festival in February and March founded, is an important one in the Godavari tract of Andhra. The temple is a standing specimen of a catholic admixture of many schools of temple architecture and in the wealth of its epigraphically details, and the sacredness of this place, it is perhaps unrivalled in these parts.
