The pilgrim centre is located in Ambavaram Kothapalli village, CS Puram mandal of Prakasam district, 120 kms from Ongole. It borders Nellore and Kadapa districts. Thousands of people from the three districts visit the place to witness the spectacle and also to take a bath in the waterfalls and worship Lord Siva and his consort on the auspicious day. Ancient temples carved in a hill at Bhairavakona attract many people on Karthika Pournami and Shivarathri. Bhairava Kona draws thousands of people from far and near for a bath on the occasion of Karthika Pournami & on a Wednesday. An interesting feature that attracts devotees to Bhairavakona is that moonlight falls on the idol of Goddess Durgadevi on the day of Karthika Pournami and Maha Shivaratri. Set amidst a vast expanse of lush greenery and surrounded by hills and waterfalls, the holy place of Bhairava Kona is a perfect getaway for the discerning traveller. The water from the falls flows down from 200 m above and flows about 3 ft. below through the Durga Devi temple. The moon light that falls on the water reflects on Durga Devi on Karthika Pournami day. Thousands of devotees flock to see this spectacle. Breathtaking scenery all around, the jaw dropping waterfalls, chirping of the birds and the wild life all around all add to the glory of this place.
