:: Kotipalli

Located about 38 Km from Kakinada, 60 Km from Rajahmundry and 15 Km from Amalapuram, Kotipalli is a famous pilgrimage centre, which is situated on the Bank of River Godavari according to Brahmanda Puranam and Gowthami Mahatyam. Three idols of Lord Indra, Lord Lord Chandra and Kasyapa Maharshi are found here.

The Holy River Gowthami in this place is famous as it was brought by Gowtham Maharshi and it is said that if any person takes a bath in these

waters can get rid of his sins. It is also known as Koti Teertha Kshetram as a number of water currents are flowing in these waters. Here there is no difference between Lord Vishnu and Lord Siva.
