Jami Vruksham Overview

Ranked 9 of 49 sightseeing in Vizianagaram

Jami Vruksham is located about 10 km away from Vizianagaram on the banks of the River Gowthami. According to legend, it is believed that the Pandavas hid their weapons during their ‘agnatavasam’ (exile) in this tree.

During the same time, Dharma Raja and Kunti Devi installed the idols of Sri Tripuranatha Swami and Sri Janardhana Swami (Lord Vishnu) at Jami. Later in the 14th and the 15th centuries, the local people discovered an idol of Sri Venu Gopala Swami. On discovering the idol, they installed it in between the two existing shrines.

According to another legend, in order to shift the temple, the people tried to uproot the Shivalingam but failed. This Lingam is 179 feet long and is fixed deep in the earth.
