KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Kovvur - Varadagopalaswamy Aalayam

This Gopala kshetra has etched its glorious name in the Puranas. Its original name given by Goutama mahaishi was Govur, a standing proof of the episode of the death of Govu - cow, which died, on being driven out by the sage, when destroying paddy. To expiate the sin of Gohatya, he was directed by Lord Gopalaswamy to install his icon at this place, deemed very sacred for several reasons. He did. The temple said to have been built in the dim past was modest in dimensions. Later it was renovated from time to time by the ruling princes and devout bhaktas. It is now possessing all the indispensable parts, like prakara, etc. In addition, the mini-shrines are adorned with rare images of the much adorable deities, like Dasanjaneya, Garuda etc. The paneled walls beautified with fine sculptural images feast the eyes of the visitors. The archamurti flanked by Satyabhama and Rukmini is too grand and so the visitors drink in the beauty of the lord with their eyes. The annual Kalyanotsav celebrated in Vaisakha masa attract thousands of bhaktas from far and near. Mukkoti and Magha Suddha Ekadasi festivals too are conducted on a grand scale.

It lies on the Vijayawada- Vishakapatnam broad guage line very near to Rajahmundry of Andhra Pradesh, commanding rail and road facilities.
