Located about 40 Km from Rajahmundry, 74 Km from Kakinada and 34 Km from Amalapuram, it is an enchanting place situated between the rivers Vashista and Gautami, the tributaries of the mighty river Godavari.

The famous temple Jagan Mohini Kesava Swamy is located here and its exquisite idol, made of black stone depicting Maha Vishnu and Mohini can be seen on its front and rear sides. This 5 feet height and 3 feet width shrine is itself the form of Sri Maha Vishnu, with the idol of Sree Kesava Swamy varu of "Sri Mahavishnu" on front side and Jagan Mohini on back side. One can also

catch a glimpse of the ten incarnations Lord Sree Maha Vishnu with consorts, Sri Devi, BhooDevi, Sage Narada, Thumbura, Rambha, Urvasi, Kinnera and Kimpurusha PLUS Lord Krishna with Govardhanagiri, Adiseshu, Garuda and Ganga.
