SRISAILAM

After the decline of Buddhism, the Hindu religion would appear to have re-established its authority, probably due to the efforts of Adi Sankara and Srisailam, which is a seat of Hinduism, is now counted as one of the sacred Kshetras with an important seat for Sakti in the name of Madhavi which later an came to be called as Bhramaramba. Srisailam is also a principal seat of the Jangams and is one of the five main mathas of the Veera saivas. Both the Brahmins and the Lingayats called as Jangams worship the 'Swayambu Linga' of Mallikarjuna calling it as Linga Chakravarti. The Jangams have one of their five important monasteries on the Srisailani hill, the most prominent of' which appears to have been the Veerasaiva Siddhi or Bhikshatana vrithi monastery mentioned in the inscriptions. Even today, the Lingayats wear around their necks, the Linga stones obtained from the bed of the Pathalaganga at Srisailam, preserving them in little caskets made of wood or silver.
