TIRUPATI,SRI KAPILESWARASWAMI TEMPLE

  • There is another belief that during Karthika month (in the month of November), on the full moon day, all the teerthas (holy places or Pilgrimage centres) situated in the three worlds merge into this Kapila Teertham at noon for ten Ghatikas (Indian measure of time equal to 24 minutes). 

  • Hence, bathing in this teertham during that auspicious time is considered holy. It is said one will attain salvation from the cycle of births and deaths. 
                                       
                                           
  • Though this is a Shivaite temple amongst the Vaishnavites, Kapila teertham has its own importance. 

  • There are some Sevas (Serving God) conducted at the temple where devotees can take part paying some amount. 

  • The temple opens early in the morning, closes down in the afternoon for sometime, and then reopens in the evening.
 

                                               
  • There are some festivals like Vinayaka Utsavam, Annaabhishekam, Karthika Deepam, Maha Shivarathri etc., celebrated in the temple for which thousands of devotees take part.
