is a reputed Saiva kshetra, where the Sivalinga according to local
version was found amidst mogili flowers in the dim past. Hence the
appropriate name. There is a small hillock adjacent to it, called
Devarakonda, where lies a spring dug by Maheswar with His Trisul,
according to sthalapurana. So it is aptly called Trisulathirtha. As
the Sivaalaya is built on its bank near the Mogili bushes, the
Aalaya is called Mogileeswaraalayam. An oddity that is found here
is, the perennial flow of water from the mouth of Nandi image
enshrined in a niche lying next to the Aalaya. It was built in 120
B.C. according to inscriptions. The Sivalinga is big and grand.
lies in the village of Mogili, in the Bangarupalem taluq of Chittoor
district of Andhra Pradesh.
