KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Lebur Channakesavaswamy Aalayam

Brahmanda Purana embodies an exhaustive account of the glory of this shrine. And it is said to have been built solely by one devout adorer by name Vasamuni Channakesavulu in 1233, unlike by the ruling princess as found elsewhere. It contains in its vast compound a separate Viranjaneyaswamy Alayam, where daily pujas are conducted independently, among which Aakupuja takes precedence over others and it is preferred by all visitors.

This ancient temple faces east and possesses a sturdy compound walls and Mahadwaram with an imposing tower. The courtyards are vast and are adorned with many mini-shrines for parivaradevatas. The Mulavirat is installed with his consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi, and is facing east. It is an ace feat of the sculptor that wrings veneration by its graceful features. A rare yearly occurrence is reported to take place here, and its uniqueness deemed a great miracle is attracting huge crowds on Ugadi - the Telugu New Year's day. A bright shaft of Sun's rays falls on the holy feet of the Lord on this day and is believed to be the Sun's offering worship to this august image on that auspicious day. It is a 3 day phenomenon, begins two days prior to Ugadi - falling of rays on head on the first day, on the navel the second day and finally on the feet on the Ugadi. Agamic puja is conducted regularly and on account of recent renovation with additions., its importance is waxing. A visit worthy Vaishnava kshetra of great spiritual significance. Special prayer services are offered on periodical festivals, like Ugadi and Mukkoti, when huge crowds visit ante avail the darsan.

It lit-s on the bank of Pinakini river at a distance of 12 km from Nellore, the district headquarters town of Andhra Pradesh, enjoying bus convenience.
