    • Item: ArasaValli , a Sun temple. Location: Srikakulam, AndhraPradesh, India. By: Krishnakomali

      One and only temple of Sun God in Southern India is Arasavalli SuryaNarayana Temple. This temple is located at a village called Arasavilli in Srikakulam district of Andhrapradesh, India.

      It is a 10 minutes drive from the srikakulam town. Since we started from Visakhapatnam, it took us nearly 3 and half hours to reach this place by

      R. T.

      C. Bus. The temple is very old one.

      There is a long black statue of Sri suryanarayana (Sun God) in the central shrine. Here people believes that by visiting this temple and worshipping Sun God, one can get relief from any kind of health problems. He is the God who blesses his devotees with good health.

      Since Health is wealth, many devotees visit this temple every year ...

      • all over the world. I have visited this temple many times. I know this temple since my childhood.

        There is a small pond outside the temple, where people can take bath. Sunday is the favorite day of this God, so there will be a heavy rush on this day. Magha Masa(Month of February ) is the auspicious month for the devotees of Sun God.

        So all the four

        Sundays in this month are precious and special poojas are performed on these days. It is very difficult to get God’s darshan(visit) on Sundays during this month. Lots of people from all over the world comes here to take blessings of lord Sun.

        There are various shops selling many offerings, food items, some fancy items around the temple. I am really happy as I got a chance to visit this temple more than once.

    sri harshitha says :

    how many temples in aasavali? lord siva temple is there? how to perform the abishakam to the siva?
    Galega says :

    There are lots of temple around Arasavalli. However, it is the Sun Temple (Arasavalli) which is famous among Hindus.

    Yes, there is Shiva Temple near Arasavalli .

    As for Abishakam (it is also called Abhishekham), you are required to have Bel patta, dhathura, milk, and a flower. the priest will do the rest.
    Bharat says :

    Mr.Krishnakomali, There is another temple of the SUN GOD Suryanarayanar in south India. It is near Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu. I have visited this temple and it has temples of other 8 grahas also within its premises. It is beautiful and U must visit it also. I wish to visit Arsavilli and shall try and do so ASAP. BHARAT
