place claims two Aalayas - one for Siva and another for Sri Rama.
The huge Sivalinga called Mahalinga found here, is supposed to have
been brought from Kasi itself. But unfortunately, it was neither
installed, nor has an Aalaya built matching its sacrosanct history.
It is believed that there are fourteen more Sivalingas awaiting
regular worship, but they could not. That is a mystery which the
mysterious Mahadeva alone knows. In the other Aalayas also there are
Sivalingas receiving regular worship.
queerness deserving mention is, that the Ramaalaya enshrines one big
Sivalinga and prayers are offered to it according to Saivagamas,
where as in Ramaalaya, normally Vaishnava sampradaya is followed.
Mysterious are the sports of the Gods! Imagination courts failure
and explanation bending its head expresses its inability!!
