SRISAILAM - MALLIKARJUNA JYOTIRLINGA

In the first prakara adjacent to this lies Brahmaramba's shrine, facing East. It is so built to be straight opposite the main temple that the sight of the Mother falls on the Sivalinga. The image resembles Durga and reveals in Santha Swarupa. The Vimana on the garbhagrihas has a golden Kalasa and the sublimity hovering over there bends the heads in reverence. Next to this lies a big size Sahastralinga with well-carved thousand miniature lingas on all sides, surrounded by a three-headed Naga. The old Mallikharjuna shrine is situated a little north of the Mukhadwara, and it also lures all the devotees with its legend. In this prakara there are many more images and shrines worthy of visitation. Another queer object that wrings veneration is the Tripala Vrikasha a combination of three trees - Medi, Juvvi and Ravi. Underneath it, there is a mantap, and a raised dais around. It is here Dattatreya did tapas and achieved his object; so it goes by the name of Dattatreya Vriksham. The image of Veerabhadraswamy, the guardian deity of this place adorned with 32 hands compels attention. One can spend hours imbibing the sublimity emanating from several places of worship, beautified with rare sculptural adornments, if time permits and taste impels.

Finally we reach the seashore temple at Rameswaram, where the Ramalingeswara Jyotirlinga installed by Bhagawan Rama is conferring all that is desired and craved for.
