AMARAVATI

There upon Brihaspati advised Indra, to consecrate the Linga on the Aswayuja Suddha Dasami, on which day there would be Sumuhoorta. Lord Indra established the Linga on that day and named the Lord as Amareswara and worshipped it.

The Guru of the Rakshasas, Sukracharya, came to that place and asked Brihaspati as to how he could establish the Amar- eswara Alaya at that place where it was likely to be drowned by the floods of the river Krishna.

Then Brihaspati recalled that there was a mountain called Crouncha which was deep in the earth up to Patala and the first piece of the Lingam fell on that mountain and was growing from that spot.

Hence even if the river Krishna flows in floods nothing will happen to that mountain and that the river will have to take some other side to flow. Hence it is that the river Krishna flows north to south at this place.

According to Brihaspati's instructions, the Devatas established the other minor shrines like the Ambika, etc., near Lord Amareswara, as Parivara Devatas.

The Yakshas and Kinnaras also lived there in Amaravati. Since the Devas or Amaras lived there for a long time,. The place itself came to be called Amaravati.
