Answered question

There is a very old temple in India where the Koorma Avatara form of Vishnu is worshipped. It is a very old and beautiful temple, where one can see Lord Vishnu present in the Kurma form, and one can go very near to Kurma. This place is called Sri Koormam, and is situated about 1 hour from the city of Vishakapatnam in Andhra Pradesh.


These are the only 3 main temples in India where Lord Vishnu is worshipped in the form of Kurma Avatar. They are,
• Sri Kurmam Temple, Srikakulam, Andra Pradesh
• Sri Gavi Ranganatha Swamy Temple, Chitradurga, Karnataka
• Sri Kurma Varadharaja Swamy Temple, Chittor, Andra Pradesh
Shri Kurmam temple is one of the main temples in India where Vishnu is worshipped in the form of a tortoise. History says that Sri Ramanujacharya established this temple at Srikakulam. The idol of Lord Vishnu is a big Saligrama and it is one of the most revered deities in the region. Sri Kurmam Temple is located in the exteriors of Srikakulam in Andhra Pradesh.
