ANNAVARAM

THE TEMPLE

Situated atop the Ratnagiri-a little hillock amidst the picturesque natural evergreen surroundings-the lovely sight of Bay of Bengal on one side, long chain of Eastern ghats on the other; sumptuous tall palms fringing on the green paddy fields and drenched by the holy waters of the river Pampa, the sacred shrine wafts the souls heavenwards at its first sight. This sacred thirtha Kshetra casts an irresistible attraction on the devotees. As it commands picturesque multi-coloured eyeful sights and is blessed with el bracing climate, many sophisticated treat it as an ideal picnic spot and frequent it very often. Even the travellers journeying in trains and buses visit this, lured by the tall towers and dazzling white walls of the temple buildings coming into their sight from miles around. As it is surrounded by quite flowing Pampa, normally bhaktas take their bath in the river, and walk along the path well-laid out with broad stone steps, numbering about 250, in hardly 10 minutes with utmost ease sans fatigue touching their body; yet the Devasthanam Authorities have laid out a ghat road for the convenience of the old and infirm.
