KALAHASTI

To the South, on the slope of the Kannappa bill, is a small shrine dedicated to Brahma in which the Linga figures with four faces in different directions. Close by on the boulders are bas-relief sculptures of Saivite mythology. The Manikanteswara shrine, which is also close by, is of very ancient origin with an important inscription. The rock-cut "mantapa to the south-east of the temple is called the Maniganniagattam, in memory of a woman having been blessed with the holy Taraka Mantra by the Lord Siva himself. Whispering it into her right car.

Even now the pious and devout bring persons on the point of death, and place them upon their right side with the ear resting upon the ground here. At the moment of death, the body turns round upon its left side, while the spirit escapes out of the right ear of the body.
