DRAKSHARAMA

But on their way back to Draksharama, near the river Saptogodavari they were halted by Tulya Maharshi, who was performing a Yagna and who feared that his Ashrama and his entire Yagna, will be washed away by the floods of the Godavari. The Sapta rishis and Tulya Maharshi were thus arguing with each other, when Vedavyasa himself, a great sage, intervened and told them that the waters of the Sapta Godavari would come to Draksharama as "Antar Vahini" i.e., as flowing under around, and form themselves into a Pushkarani Tirtha, by name Sapta Godavari, before Lord Bhimeswara Swami, for the purpose of Abhisheka. In the meantime, the sun rose, and as the Sapta rishis were late and could not arrive before sunrise at Draksharama, the Lord Sun himself came and performed the first Archana to Lord Bhimeswara who’d manifested himself as the Swayambu here. Thus Pushkarani Sapta Godavari came into existence, and the waters are being used for the abhishekam of the Lord.
