KUPPAM  - OLD SIVAALAYAM

This little but enchanting town of Chittoor district, lying on the borders of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka has a fragrant story that is captivating the hearts of the affluent gay elite in far off continents like Europe, and America too. Its sandalwood oil industry, the only one of its kind and the pride of the state with its quality products catapulted the glory of Andhra Pradesh to a commendable degree. Moreover, with a wide variety of commercial crops it is producing, it has become instrumental in  spreading its name in many far off states like Maharashtra etc. Its salubrious climate and evergreen forests around are some of its special points. It also houses many places of worship dedicated to all gods of the Hindu Pantheon, like Vinayaka, Rama, Kaliamma, Siva and the like. Of the Sivaalayas, the ancient Sivaalaya lying in the old town deserves mention. Though pretty old, its grip on the theists is decidedly great. Both young and old throng this temple in the evenings and mornings. Saivate gods are installed in well-built niches. Saivagama puja is performed with strict adherence to agamic rules to the accompaniment of rituals. Periodical festivals too are celebrated on a grand scale.

It lies in the heart of the town and accessible by walk or richshaws, and Kuppam is on the broad gauge line of Southern Railway between Madras and Bangalore.
