PITHAPURAM - DEVI PURUHUTIKA AALAYAM

Now listen to the legend. Pithapuram has the singular fortune of enshrining a famous Shakti Peetha and Kukkuteswar Swamy shrine of immense spiritual significance, beside possessing the legendary Padagsaya tank, says the priest with pardonable pride. The temple complex abounds in many shrine dictated to Sri Rama, Kumara swamy, Venkateswara swamy Venugopala Swamy and Kunti Madhava swamy. It is a visit worthy pilgrim centre, famous in legend and history. The royal family of this town made a mark by patronizing arts an letters, and their contribution for the religious progress too i highly commendable. So its historicity too is of no mean destruction to say the least. According to Puranas, Mother Sati's organ fell here, when Lord Mahavishnu cut dexterously the cropse of Sati, borne by Siva after Daksha samhara. It became a Sakthi-peetha, and the deity is called Devi Puruhutika. This shrine lies opposite Kukutteswaraswamy, the principal deity old the temple. What other unique it claims, let us enter and see.
