BIKKAVOLU - SUBBARAYA AALAYAM

This highly renowned and immensely popular Saiva kshetra enshrining Golingeswara swamy, a benefaction by Gunaga Vijayaditya of Vengai Chalukyas is also housing a grand shrine for Subrahmanyaswamy extremely popular as Subbahayani gudi. Its popularity is primarily due to a sacred anthill with a serpent deemed the living manifestation of Subrahmanya. It is visited mostly by the barren couple, who offer special worship with several rituals. Barren mothers wearing special type of sarees worship the ant-hill devoutly and sleep in the temple for one full night. They observe fast the whole day and after second worship go home with full and sure hope of becoming mothers. Their hopes are not blasted, nor do they ever come to the temple again on that score. Does not belief give relief? Does genuine prayer ever remain unfulfilled? Additionally, patients of ear-ache also turn in large numbers to worship Lord Subbaraya and go home happily relieved of their harassing ache. This Subrahmanya shrine though only an integral part of Golingeswaraswamy is winning colourful feathers of the main temple. True son raises the glory of the parents always. The archamurti Golingeswaraswamy is also very powerful and has been blessing devotees to their satisfaction.

It is 12 km off Ramachandrapuram in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh and accessible by bus.
