SRISAILAM

A reference to this place in Mahabharata in the Vanaparva is as follows:

"At Sriparvata on the Srisailam Mountain, the resplendent Lord Siva abides with his consort Parvati, immersed in divine delight. Brahma also stays there along with other Gods. One bath in the sacred lake, with purity and self-control of mind, has the same efficacy as the performance of an Asvamedha sacrifice. Not only the pilgrim is benefited, but his entire race is also liberated." On the top of the Srisailam hill, is the famous temple of Lord Siva, known as Mallikarjuna which is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga. The Lingapurana also refers to the Jyotirlinga here. The Goddess is known by the name of Bhramaramba. The place is one of the eight main sthanas of Lord Siva and there is a great Sakti peetha of the Goddess here.
