DRAKSHARAMAM - MANIKYAMBA AALAYAM 

It is this flourishing city that was converted into burial ground by Virabhadra, at the behest of Lord Siva, it is here Lord Siva started his Thandava Nritya with Parvathi's corpse on shoulders under ungovernable indignation caused by the ruthlessness of Daksha; it is to this temple pushkarini, the Saptarishis brought Godavari water through underground passage for abhisheka of Lord siva; it is this archamurthi that is worshipped by sungod both in morning and evening, testified by the falling of sun's rays on the linga twice; it is here in this sacred temple, the kalyanotsavam of both Siva and Vishnu are celebrated with great gusto and fanfare on the same Vedika, same time every year during the Bhishma Ekadasi festival lasting for about a week; it is this Lord Siva worshipped by Sri Rama in the Treta Yuga, and Arjuna in Dwapara Yuga,; it is this lord Siva who was immortalized by Srinatha Kavisarvabhouma in his Bhimeswara Mahatamyam; it is with the blessing of this Lord Siva and Manikyamba, Vemulavada Bhimakavi struck terror into the minds of mighty rulers with his potent words that worked miracles; and finally it is to this archamurthi the renowned Chalukya Bhima constructed high towers, massive prakaras, huge mandapas and mini-shrines inside, and so the temple is fittingly called Bhimeswaraalayai after him.
