LORD MAHABALESWAR OF GOKARNAM

It was worshipped by Ravanabrahma's mother first at the instance of Brahma and Maheswar, who descended to advise and console them; it was to keep this Atmalinga here, a great strategy was contemplated and implemented by Brahma and employed Vinayaka to beguile Ravana; it is here lies Rama thirtha, where Sri Rama stayed for some time worshipping the Atmalinga to expiate the sin of Narahatya - killing of Ravana; it is here Mother Tamara Gowri is holding a balance in her hand to indicate the glory of this kshetra weighing heavier than Kasi and it is here lies a wide variety of gods belonging to Vaishnava Sampradaya.

Renowned as a great Saiva kshetra; eulogised in scriptures; endowed by royal families and visited by lakhs of Siva bhaktas since the Tretayuga, this punya yatrasthala is luring pilgrims and conferring boons to their satisfaction and emancipating devout bhaktas at all times.
