DRAKSHARAMA

The Sapta Godavari has the Pakasasanalaya on its West. The legend about this is that at the time of the manifestation of Bhimeswaraswami in Lingakara, and when the Saptarishis were performing the Archana to the Lord, all the thirty-three crores of the Devatas came to have the darshan of the Lord, when a divine voice ordained that whoever, at that auspicious moment, installs a Linga at any place near Sapta Godavari Pushkarani will get eternal bliss." Thereupon Lord Indra installed a Linga, over which a temple was raised under the name Pakasasana Devalaya. Innumerable Lingas by other Devatas were also installed here.

There is a temple called Sri Sankara Narayanaswami temple at the pathway to the Eastern Gopura. To right in front of the Dhwajastambha are two big trees, one the Ravi tree, and the other, the Neem tree, which are intertwined together. At the foot of this, there is a Shivalinga and also Vishnu Vigraha called Sankara Narayana Swami. This is said to be a symbolical representation of the oneness of Lord Siva and Lord Vishnu. Popular belief is that if Pradakshina in the prescribed manner is done to this the barren people are blessed with children.
