Gangavaram - Sitaramaalayam

There is an exciting belief current in this part that this kshetra belongs to the divine Gangasankaras alone, and they are the sole proprietors of this entire holy land. They have their abodes scattered here and there, but the popular Sita Ramaalayam owes its existence to the Omni compassion of Lord Mahadev. And He had given asylum once to Sri Rama and Sita. So they could stay here only for a while, like relatives, but do not claim rights of permanent settlement. Ironical it appears that this temple is more famous and popular than Sivaalaya. Queer is the belief, isn't it? Strangely enough it is affording emotional relief and spiritual bliss. Hinduism, though allows demarcations among its sects, does not build solid walls of separation. Siva and Vishnu are one and the same, though they have individual bodies, names and abodes.

This temple was built by Venkamma, popular as Dorasani, related to a feudal dynasty. Though not sculpturally enticing, it is grand and lures devotees with several kinds of prayer services and annual festivals. The Utsavamurtis were donated by the neighboring villagers, when found then during digging operations. It was visited by eminent Peethadhipathis, like the pontiff of Ahobalapeeth, and then special prayers were conducted by him. To the left of the mandir is situated an old Sivaalayam requiring renovation, though a well-built one in the past. Another Sivaalayam called Gangeswaralayam built by Gonareddy dyansty lies near this.

It lies in Bijinipalli mandalam of Palamur district of Andhra Pradesh and APSRTC buses ply from several points to this villages.
