SRIKURMAM

There is a famous Kshetramahatmyam in this temple which was told by Rishi Dattira to Vyasa. The Sthalapurana says that the sage heard in his dream from Lord Hari himself the details about the greatness of Srikurmam. According to this Sthalapurana, there was a mountain called Swetachala in which King Suta was ruling. The queen was a pious lady and the king approached her on a Suddha Ekadashi day, which was a day dedicated by her to prayer and meditation. The queen prayed to the Lord that her Vrata should not be broken, and Lord Sri Kurmanatha, ordered Gangatirtha to flow in between the king and the queen, so that the queen's Vrata may be fulfilled. The king, thus separated from the queen, lived on the banks of the Vamsadhara River, where one day Rishi Narada met him, and told him that he could bring upon himself the blessings of Sri Hari by doing proper penances.
