Two more thirtha situated on the north and south sides of the temple are deservedly famous for offering pindas to the manes. They are called Pindasthanam and Runavimochanam. Taking a bath in them during Adi and. Revathi nakshatras, and gifting an amalaka fruit to brahmins relieve one of his debt to his manes. Anyone bathing in this continuously for five days and praying to the Lord will enjoy Vishnu Sannidhya. 

Another holy thirtha by name Akasaganga is attracting pilgrims due to the fact of Brahma doing penance here once and getting the darsan of Trivikrama thereby. There are some more thirthas and each is connected with some celebrity who acquired merit, either by bathing in them, or doing penance on their banks Devout pilgrims visit them all. 


In the days of yore, this primeval-forest was deemed to be the most ideal place for penance and it gave asylum to scores of sages and seers of interplanetary reputation. Its serenity together with sublimity drew many celestials too for meditation purposes. It possesses all the necessary conditions-climate etc. for penance and ascetic living. Hence the attraction for both celestials and terrestrials.
