MEENAMBARAM - PARUSA VEDEESWARA AALAYAM

The antiquity of this kshetra dates back to Tretayuga and it is quite fascinating too. According to Gangapura legend, Nala, one of the Shatchakravartis, during his exile came to this region, and when he was eating the boiled fish, offered by the villagers, a few fell into the river, ,and at once they turned into live fish. As such this place was deemed then very holy, and realising its spiritual potentialities, one devotee by name Veerakambala built a big temple and dedicated it to Chennakesava, his household deity. Hearing its glory, Lord Siva descended to visit and adore the archamurti. During then, it so happened that two extremely ravishing fisher-virgins called - Ingi and Thangi came into His sight on the bank of the river. He was irresistably drawn to them and loved passionately too. So He said to them that He would live on the bank under the new name of Parusavedeeswara and would change their brass pots into gold, if they, touched the Sivalinga. He kept up his word and lured many, by showering several boons on the adorers. Gradually it became a great Saivakshetra of unprecedented fame. It was a big and well built temple, but it tasted the wrath of Moghul emperor Aurangazeb and so was razed to the ground.

It is near Zeherla of the Mahaboobnagar and accessible by bus.
