Pithapuram Kukkuteswara Temple History:

According to “Bhimeswara Puranam” by Srinath Kavi Sarvabhuma, Pithapuram is one of twelve pilgrims (Dwadasa Punya Kshetram). The sage said that Pithapuram was equal to Kasi and also known as Southern Kasi (Dakshina Kasi).

For the well-being of the gods, and at the request of Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva took a cock to kill the demon Gayasura. According to the blessing given to Gayasur by Trimurthys Lord Shiva, the cock after Gayasur ‘s death was transformed into Shiva linga.
