About temple :

             The temple is in Gunupudi village of Bheemavaram town, west Godavari fistrict AP.The place is 32 kms from Narasapur and 70kms from Eluru.

Main deity: Swayamby spatika Athma lingam known as Someswarar. One of the pieces of Athma lingam fell here and it was installed by Lord Chandra, hence the name Somaramam. The Lingam is big and changes its colors which is something unique. It is milky white on full moon day and by the time of new moon day it changes into whitish or black. We see goddess parvathi to side in different sanctum near the main sanctum of Lord Siva. In front of Someswarar we see saligrahamam.

Main mandapam we have steps leading to Annapurani temple which is above Main Siva sanctum. Amba and Ambalika are Dwara balikas for the sanctum of Annapurani. The other deities around the temple are Kumaraswamy, Lakshmi Janardhanar, Subramanya swamy, and Soorya Narayana Moorthy. There is a separate sanctum for Nava graham. There is a pushkarani in front of the temple.

How to reach Somaramam : 

             Somaramam is well connected by Road and Railway route. There are so many direct buses to Bhimvaram from Vijayawada and Eluru. Previously Gunupudi is a small village, but now, is a part of Bhimavaram. After reaching Bhimavaram we have to go Gunupudi by an Auto.

In Karthika masam APSRTC maintains speacial Pancharamas tour buses to cover all Pancharamas in a single day.

Bhimavaram Railway station is located at 2km distance from Someswara swamy temple. This Railway station is not present in main-line. So many expresses will not go through this station. It is better to step down at Vijayawada or Eluru.

Nearest Airports are at Vijayawada / Rajahmundry.
