BIKKAVOLU - GOWLINGESWARAALAYAM

The little town was once the capital of Chalukya Gunaga Vijayaditya and was well-known by his honorific title of Birudanka Bhima. His capital was then named after him and became popular as Bhimanaprolu, which in course of time became Bikkavolu. There are three Aalayas facing east and are called Golingeswaraalaya, Rajarajeswaraalaya and Chandrasekaraalaya - all dedicated to Siva only, though bearing different names.

Of the three, Golingeswaraalayam is the biggest and grandest too on account of its sculptural adornments. They have Sivalingas as the main worshipful deities. The Sivalinga installed in Golingeswaraalaya made of black granite is quite alluring by its height and polish. The Aalaya also enshrines Subrahmanya icon in one of its niches and goes by the name of Subbarayudu. There are ant-hills with serpents, and they are also receiving regular worship. To get relief from ear-ache and get Santanaprapti, adorers throng this Aalaya throughout the year and offer prayers for periods lasting ten to forty days. On account of perceptible relief one gets - a tangible proof the Lord's mercy its importance is on the ascendancy to the amazement test-tube scientists.

This lies at a distance of 12 km to Ramachandrapuram of East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.
