SRIKURMAM

The king thereupon went to the place where the Vamsadhara River joined the sea, and prayed to the Lord that he should have the blessed Darshan of the holy feet of Sri Hari. Rishi Narada taught the king the Kurma Mantra and asked him to remain in Tapassamadhi, meditating upon it. The king performed intense Tapascharya, repeating the Lord's name, in the Kurma Mantra, and Lord Sri Hari, assuming the form of Sri Kurmavathara, and decorated with the Sankha, Chakra, Gada and Padmam, gave Darshan to the king. Rishi Narada, King Suta and Sri Kurmanatha then proceeded to the neighboring hill where a Rishi called Vakrangamaharshi was living. On the way, the Lo, seeing a sacred spot, thought it fit to create, through his 6akra, the brilliant tank known as the Ksheera Samudram. Mahalakshmi came to that sacred spot and then said that she would reside there. The sacred spot is said to be Srikurmam or Kurmagundam.
