bhaktirasa. As a matter of fact, the river Krishna with its holy
waters has been making the citizens of this Vijayapuri, immensely
distinguished and reputed in every realm of human action.
Illustrarious persons were born here to uphold the torch of Dharma
burning ever bright. As if to replenish the devotional fervour, the
river Krishna swells and flows to unprecedented heights once in
every 12 years called Krishna Pushkaram, when people in lacs visit
and bathe in the sacred waters for making lives blissful. And it is
believed that there are many famous thirthas, like Chakra, Mutti,
Sankha, Narasimha, Trisula, Indra and Rishi in the river itself.
Their presence is heightening its potency. Hence the saying that
with a mere look at the water, sins take to. flight. And a bath
makes one sin-proof.
