|There are many
important Kshetras round about Srikurmam. To the west, there is a Sivite temple by the
name of Sundare swara, at Pippala village. To the east, where the Vamsadhara River joins
the sea, there is a famous temple of Karpureswara and to the west on the banks of the
Langulya there is the temple of Koteeswara. There are also many Tirthas near Srikurmani
like the Vakratirtha in which Rishi Jabala is supposed to have lived, Chakratirtha,
Sudhagunda, Ashtatirtha etc.
The sthalapurana also
mentions that the worship of the Lord will bestow the following blessings. The devotee
will be purified of his sins and will have no rebirth. He will get the same benefit as
from a pilgrimage to Mathura, Benaras, Amaravati and Ayodhya. He will have Mukti and reach
heaven. He will be helping his Pitrudevatas by a bath in the Sudhakundam, near Srikurmam,
which will completely wipe off all past karmas.
