AMARAVATI

At the end of Dwaparayuga, and the beginning of Kaliyuga i.e., 5053 years ago, Maharshi Narada was once asked by the Sounakadi rishis as to the best means of obtaining liberation. In other words, the Sounakadi rishis prayed for instructions on the Mukti marga from Maharshi Narada.

Then Rishi Narada told them that Lord Krishna had created the river Krishna, and he advised the Sounakadi rishis to live very near the river Krishna and to have constantly their bath in its holy water in order to attain their own salvation. Then Rishi Narada narrated the sthalapurana of Amareswara as follows.

Amareswara is situated on the southern bank of river Krishna, and is on the southeastern side of the Srisailam temple. Amareswaram is important because in that place are three sacred things, viz., the Krishna river, an important Kshetra with a Sthala mahatmyam and the Sri Mahalinga Murthy, which are three sacred principles embodied in one.
