TRISAKTIPEETHAM

According to legends Tarakasura turned himself into lokakanthaka on obtaining several boons. When life on earth became unbearable, the afflicted Mother Earth and Surasura manavas met Lord Vishnu for relief. He directed their to seek help from Lord Siva, who on hearing their sight deputed Kumaraswamy to kill Turakasura, giving clue for flooring him. Accordingly Kumara, the Field marshal of the celestial army hit Taraka with his spear on the Chest, bearing the Sivalinga. At once it was split into five parts and fell at different places. And them each place became an arama of unparalleled spiritual importance. Thus came into existence the Pancharamas Draksharama Bhimarama, Ksheerarama, Somarama and finally Amararama. Grand shrines were built in these places and Sivalingas were installed with due agamic rites for the benefit of devotees of both terrestrials and celestials.
