18-9-2011: After the holy dip in the sea we proceeded towards the Eastern Vimanam of the Temple. It is customary for devotees to visit all the 22 Holy teerthams located within the temple precincts and bathe in the water. Accordingly we bought tickets for the Teertam Yatra and we garnered a young student to accompany us with a rope & bucket to draw the water from the Teerthams (wells) and pour water over our heads. The names of the 22 Teerthams where we bathed are: Mahalakshimi,Savithiri, Gayatri,Saraswathi,Sethumadhava, Gandhamadana, Kavatcha,Gavaya,Nala,Neela,Sanku,Sakkara,Brahmahathi Vimochana,Soorya, Chandra, Ganga, Yamuna,Gaya,Siva,Sadyamirtha,Sarva & Kodi Teertams. These waters are said to possess medicinal qualities.
