TIRUPATHI - KAPILATHIRTHA SIVALAYAM

The carving on the wall lying between these two inner chambers, depicting Kapila lylaharshi sitting near the cow, milking itself over an ant-hill explains the glory of this kshetra. The Aalayam contains many icons of black stones in the adjacent hall with Navagrahas in the centre, facing the Shanmuga idol in a separate niche have a great attraction. Outside, under the neem tree and upon a high platform are set up the images of serpents - Nagadevathas that are receiving ritualistic worship with circumambulation. Next to them lie two mini-shrines housing huge Sivalingas and big size, Nandis infront. The first one is called Kotilingeswaralinga and the other Agasthiswaralinga. The lingas are moderate in dimensions, but their pull is decidedly great. Down below this rock-cut shrine lies the big Pushkarini fed by water, flowing down in torrents, from the sacred Saptagiris during the rainy season. There are two shrines at the portals - one shrine for Balaji facing east and another for Gopalakrishna. Recently another old shrine is renovated lying outside the entrance, and there are many modern architectural designs embossed on the rock with a charming garden in front. A little further away lies a moderate mandap housing a tall Anjaneya figure engraved on a stone. A visit rewards and prayer refreshes the care-worn, dull, dreary existence.

It can be reached by town buses or Aalaya Darsana buses. In the heart of Tirupathi town there is another ancient Sivaalayam, but due to inadequate funds and publicity, Sivalilas are not recognized as they should be. Though it is old, it contains all the adorable deities such as Vinayaka, Mother Parvathi etc. duly installed and receiving agamic prayer services regularly.
