DRAKSHARAMA

Draksharama is also called as Dakshina Kasi or the Southern Banaras. Vedavyasa is said to hav e founded this temple, and the Ravi tree and Lingam said to have been founded by him, are still shown. Within the temple is a curious well, the mouth of which is in the shape of a strung bow. It is called the Rudra Tirtha and a Lingam at the site of the Western gate is said to be making a daily pilgrimage to Banaras.

There are many popular legends and Sthalapuranas regarding the sanctity and sacredness of this place. In the Saptogodavari, Lord Siva himself is said to have manifested himself, in the form of a Linga, under the name Bhimeswara Swami. Seeing this Swayambu manifestation of the Lord, the Sapta rishis went to Godavari in order to bring its waters, for performing abhishekam to the Lord before sunrise.
