SRIKURMAM

The presiding deity of the temple, Lord Vishnu, goes by the name of Srikurmanatha. There are several sacred Tirthas within the temple. The popular legend is that the Lord is said to have first appeared here to bless king Swetamahipathi. It is said that the bones of the deceased if thrown into the Swetapushkarani tank get converted into tortoises or kurmas, and hence unclean persons are forbidden to touch the water from the tank.
