SRISAILAM

The main festivals of the temple last from February to the end of May and during this period, the temple is under the management of the Pushpagiri Math of Cuddapah district, whereas on the other days, the management is left to a Jangam priest assisted by the local Chenchus. The festivities of Sivarathri as at present conducted, are not, as is seen from the inscriptions that are available, as magnificent the festival night, a big piece of unbleached cloth over a hundred yards in length is wrapped round the prominent figure of the Nandi along the roof line and the pinnacle of the temple, unobserved by the expectant crowds. The Chenchus take the leading part in the festivals both before and after Sivarathri. Goddess Bhramaramba whose festivals come a month or two after Sivarathri attracts even larger crowds consisting of Lingayats. Goddess Bhramarambika is really a form of Kali and is said to be one of the eighteen leading Sakthis of India.
