ALAMPUR

The king repented for his sins and begged the deer to tell him as to how he could get rid of them. The deer told the King that he should go to Brahmeswara.

Kshetras and do penance there for some time and re-construct all the temples, if he wanted to get over his sins. On one of the sculptures of the temple, this story is depicted.

The deer also told him that by the time when the image of the King on the stone becomes spoiled in course of time, the King would be relieved of the great sin.

Besides the above sthalapurana,the great- ness of this Siva Kshetras is mentioned in detail in the Telugu book "Panditharadhya Charitra" of Palkuriki Somanatha, a great Telugu poet of the 12th century A.D.

The nine Brahma temples here are known as Bala Brahma, Kumara Brahma, Arka Brahma, Veera Brahma, Viswa Brahma, Taraka Brahma, Garuda Brahma, Swarga Brahma, and Padma Brahma.

These nine aspects are peculiar to these temples alone,and are not found anywhere else in India. Daily hundreds of pilgrims visit this holy and sacred place.

Those who go to Srisailam, generally visit this place also as this is said to be the western gate of Srisailam. In addition to these temples here, there is the sacred Sangameswara, which is the meeting placeof Tungabhadra and Krishna.

The temple of Bala Brahmeswara is situa- ted on the banks of Tungabhadra amidst scenes of natural beauty and charm. The temple is famous for its sanctity as well as for the greatness of sculptures here.
