amidst the Nature's colorful beauty, this Uma Maheswaraswamy Aalayam
enshrines a self-manifested Sivalinga of great spiritual reputation.
Next to Srisailam, this is visited by asthikas in large numbers
throughout the year. A certain devotee by name Gnanananda had the
vision of Lord Siva here, and in ecstatic rapture, it is said, he
burst out "Yeganti, Neganti, Nenathmaganti which means - Seen,
I have seen, and I have seen with soul Lord Siva". So this
place became Yaganti later. It was visited by Pandavas and also gods
at the invitation of Maharshis
like Agasthya, and many Pithadhipathis like Sankara and Virendra
Brahma. The big size Nandi has many strange legends. This is
Swayamvyakta and emerged when a big boulder was broken for
lies in the Kurnool district from where regular bus service
transports bhaktas to this place.
