Must to see in a life time...
Aug 2020
This is the must see in a lifetime place on earth. Every one will have a divine feeling which is unexplainable. This temple is a divine scenic beauty with greenery & lot of green fields in the surrounds. As this is one of the five pancharama ksehtras of Andhra, piligrims goes atleast once especially during kartheeka masam. Lord shiva in linga rupam with about 14 feets height - one could see in two stairs. Can't wait to visit in this kartheeka masam too.

Mind blowing architecture
Apr 2020 • Family
This temple is one of the pancharama (one of the five) astonishing temples located in different parts of our country. The temple is best for its external beauty in its tall gopuram and also it's interior where the design of the sivalinga is really admirable. The exclusive architecture of the temple and it's historical importance makes it one of the best ones to visit in a lifetime.

Exciting Temple of the Pancharam Kshetra
Nov 2019
Drakasharam is one amongst the Pancharama Kshetras of Andhra. The deity, Lord Shiva is in Linga rupa here and is 14 feet tall like a pipe. You need to see the lingam in the first floor and then come down to the ground floor to see the base of the temple. Abhishekam and other rituals to the deity is performed in the first floor.

This temple also houses the 12th Sakthi Peetam of Goddess Mahalaxami. This place reverberates with the power of these two deities.

The temple complex is huge and attractive. During Karthika Maasam the temple has a festive look and lots of devotees throng the temple during this period to see the deity and seeks its blessings.

Draksharam is located on a small island in Godavari River that flows from Rajahmundry and then drains out to the sea at Antarvedi in Bhimavaram. There is one approach to Draksharam where you need to cross the river by ferry. Small vehicles are allowed to be taken in this ferry.

This temple is a must see temple for pilgrims on tour of Andhra.

Powerful Pancharama
Aug 2019 • Couples
Draksharama temple is not only a Pancharama kshetra but is one of the Ashtadasa Shakti Peeta. Here Manikyamba Talli resides.
The temple premises is big, with two prakarams. It is built like a fort. It is a 2 storied temple and the Prakara Mandapam is also 2 storied.
The place has such a divine aura and is not to be missed if you are in the vicinity.

Just made it before 12:00noon closing time
Feb 2019
We were coming from Pithapuram and managed to reach the Draksharamam temple just before closing time. There was a pujari who volunteered to take us around the temple which he did. We had a good darshan. But after that, the pujari started asking us to perform special puja etc which we did not plan for. It was more like a sales talk which we didn't anticipate and expect.

Otherwise the temple is majestic and nice. They also serve lunch and we did have lunch in the adjacent place where free lunch was being provided. Simple and nice food for a hungry traveler.
