About Us:Sri Subramanya Swamy Temple

Strange are the ways of the divine that a mystery seldom remains beyond comprehension. A unique phenomenon occurred in the eastern outskirts of the village Alavelli Mallavaram, Gollaprolu Mandalam, East Godavari District in 1961.A cobra really divine in nature appeared in the temple land of lord kukkuteswara of Pithapuram, without touching anything or go away anywhere in spite of the provocations by the visitors, about a week after subrahmanya shashti.

People started coming from various places and nearby villages to see the divine cobra. Devotees used to offer cow milk, as it was a tradition in this part of country. According to Hindu texts, Lord kumaraswamy (son of Lord Shiva and Parvathi) is also called as Sri Subrahmanyeswara and prayed in Sarpa Roopa (As cobra). Swamy (Cobra) used to take bath in nearby farm canals and stay on the same land despite the crowd of devotees. With contributions from the villagers, elders of the village started constructing a temple (10-2-1962). Next day morning, while moving at the site, swamy died at the same site of construction. After consultations with the Pandits and senior priests, on 12-2-1962 swamy was buried in the same place and sanctum sanctorum (Garbhalayam) was constructed on it. An idol of subrahmanya swamy in Sarpa Roopa (As Cobra) was placed in the sanctum sanatorium along with Siva lingam and Ammavaru. At the time of construction on 25-11-1962, another cobra entered in to the site of the temple and started living there as of the earlier cobra. Swamy used to move around all the day and sleep in the back side of the temple in the night. Construction of the temple was completed as per "Agama Shastra" ( A book on construction of temples).Special Poojas and rituals were performed from 31-1-1963 to 4-2-1963.Swamy used to enter the temple and sit on Siva Lingam and stay there for a long period of time. Devotees used to perform Abhishekam(Holy Bath) directly to the lord when he was on the Siva Lingam without any fear. This news was appeared in many leading news papers.
