Concert at Lord Suryanarayana Temple - Arasavilli - AP 24.04.07

It was so nice to trvel once again by flightr this time to Vizag on way to Lord Sury's temple in Arasavalli, Srikakulam Dist AP. What a wonderful temple which looked like Konark temple from outside. Maintained so well, i understand this was built by Lord Indra himself. The pillars are with intrecate carvings and of great treasure value.

I also had the oppurtunity to visit the world's only temple - Sri Koormam temple for Kurma Avathara of Lord Vishnu where he is seen in the form of Tortoise. understand it is of 2nd century B.C. and it is a pity that it is not maintained properly. The colorful paintings on the corridors are indeed of great and the three dimentional painting of Lord Ranganatha is of special mention. To see a painting made of so early years is mind boggling.

I was very moved by the excellent hosting by Sri Sankar Sarma head priest and co-ordinator of this concert and Sri Parabrahmam - former Thasildhar and President of Rotract Srikakulam Dist. I had a photo taken with Sri Sankar Sarma's family also. HAppy that appa was also felicitated during the concert.
