SAMALKOTA - KUMARARAMAM

Skanda Purana eulogises this kshetra elaborately and includes the names of the celebrated dignitaries such as Vyasa Maharshi, who visited and adored the Lord with unbounded devotional fervor. In the campus of this aalaya there is a Pushkarini -- holy tank and it is customary that all the bhaktas take. bath in it before worshipping the Lord. It is called Bhimakundam. Besides the Saivate gods, like Vinayaka, Kumaraswamy, Parvathi, it houses the grand images of Saptamatrukas and Navagrahas in mandapams befitting their position and reputation.

The glory of this Kumararama is extensively portrayed in Siva and Skandapuranas. The Mahasivaratri annual festival is celebrated on a grand scale for four days, when devotees come from far and near in lakhs.

It is in Samalkot town, in the West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.

Our last halt is . at Bhimavaram, where Someswaraswamy linga greets us to shower blessings to our satisfaction.
