Chollangi is a holy place where the River Godavari flows into the sea, the Bay of Bengal (Bangala Khatham in Telugu). It lies on one of the seven mouths (mukha dwaram) of the Godavari near the sea coast. Chollangi is a village in East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh.
Chollangi is visited by Sapta Sagara Yatra devotees who precede a pilgrimage to seven mouths of the Godavari. Chollangi Amavasya or the Amavasya falls in Pushya Masam (December – January) is the most auspicious day for Sapta sagar yatra pilgrims during which they conclude their Yatra with a holy bath along the River banks of Godavari at Chollangi. This day also marks the beginning of Magha Snanam in Andhra Pradesh.
Thousands of devotees throng to Chollangi during Makara Sankranthi to perform Makara Sankramana Snanam.
Chollangi Amavasya is known as Mauni Amavasya in North India. Darsh Amavasya is another name for Pushya Amavasya in other regions of India.
