SRISAILAM - MALLIKARJUNA JYOTIRLINGA

This novelty, as the word goes is due to the impact of Buddhism that held its sway during Acharya Nagarjuna's period. Another oddity discernable is, the priests here are Jangama Lingayats, testifying to the fact that the temple was managed and dominated by Virasaivas for long, though the administration was in the hands of Pushpagiri Brahmins. The sacred shrine is quite imposing in architectural design with Garbha griha, Mukha mantap, Ranga mantap and Virasaiva mantap. The Vimana and Sikhara with dazzling kalasam atop and adorned by images of Nandis on all sides make a grand appeal, and the sculptural adornments lift the souls of the devotees. The monolithic Nandi installed opposite the Sivalinga is huge in size and goes by the name of Sanagalabasavanna.
