Sri Rama Temple (Ramatheertham)

As per Sthala Purana during pandavas exile, they asked Lord Krishna to come with them but Krishna rejected their proposal and gave idols of his previous avatar Rama,Sita and Lakshmana. They prayed here for some period and while leaving this place they gave these idols to priest vedagarbha to look after. He and his later generations performed pujas and abhishekams regularly for so many years, During the period of Buddhism to protect the idols in fear of demolition they buried in pit and covered with mud.

Later in 16th century King Poosapati Sita Ramachandra of Gajapati  Dynasty Ruling Kumbilampuram (Kumili Village present) as Capital, he came to know about these idols through an old lady and ordered his staff to recover from pond. Later on Bhishma Ekadasi King and his priests built a temple on this swetachalam hill.
