PITHAPURAM -  KUKKUTESWARA SWAMY AALAYAM

Pithapuram has the singular fortune of enshrining a Saktipitha., besides the famous Kukkuteswara Aalaya of immense spiritual significance and the legendary Padagaya tank. The temple campus abounds in many shrines dedicated to Sri Rama, Kumaraswamy, Venkateswaraswamy, Venugopalaswamy and Kuntimadhavaswamy. It is a visitworthy pilgrim centre, famous in legend and history. The royal family of this town made a mark by patronising arts and letters, and their contribution for the religious progress too is highly commendable. So its historicity too heightened the glory of this glorious kshetra.

Kukkuteswaraswamy, as the presiding deity is called, reveals Himself in lingakara, and it is a white marble stone of about two feet in height. Due to crowing like cock, and the linga resembling the back of cock, Lord Siva is called Kukkuteswaraswamy. He fulfils the desires of bhaktas without austerities of severe nature. Hence the thronging of devotees in large number always. It is a Swayambhu linga and it is believed that water is trickling down into a pot from his nose. This potent murti was worshipped by Maharshi Vyasa, Valmiki, Agastya ardently for long.

It lies in the taluq head quarters town of Pithapuram, lying at a distance of 18 km to Kakinada in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.
