INTRODUCTION

And now that we have completed visiting 24 premier shrines of the august Aryavartha along with Orissa, let us step on the holy soil of Andhradesa, studded with sacred shrines in hundreds. Here greets our eyes altogether a new temple culture, characterized by lofty towers, massive enclosures, and imposing structures, embellished by sculptural adornments of rare kind. The striking contrast between the Aryavartha and Dakshinapatha starting from here spreads all over the south and overwhelms us at every step. The south, since time immemorial is renowned for displaying of devotion in a unique way that differs from the North. And lo! it gratified the gods infinitely, rather to the extent of taking seats permanently at certain places, lured by the Nature's splenderous beauty sprouting from her bounteous treasures, of the their own accord, at it. Or abiding in several places at the soulful prayers of devotees. The shrines thus came into existence are numerous; their legends too quite curious, and each is invested with a charm of its own that beckons indispensable visitation by both yatris and patryasakas.
