Melted at their tear-stained faces, He deputed Shanmuga and assured that he would achieve victory. With redoubled vigour, they started the battle soon. Alas! Shanmuga too was courting failure now and then. For firm and final success, they again prayed for Siva's succour. He then directed Shanmuga, to break the Amruthalinga that brings victory instantly since, in as much as Taraka identified himself with Siva and was bearing on his body the Siva's emblem, encased in a box and fixed to neck chain, he would become powerless, if it is broken to pieces. It proved true -- Shanmuga with his dreadful spear shattered Siva linga into pieces. At once Taraka died. The shattered pieces fell at five places, and at the command of Lord Siva consecreted those places with installation of Sivalingas for regular worship by devas and people. All these places are called Pancharamas -- Ksheeraramam, Amararamam, Somaramam, Draksharamam and 3himaramam, and in each, a temple was built and linga installed by celestial dignitaries. Brihaspathi was consulted for guidance. Under his direction, a white tall Sivalinga was installed and consecreted by Devendra and it was named Amareswaraswamy. Due ceremonies and agamic canons were strictly followed during installation, and regular prayer services too were introduced for the benefit of bhaktas of both heaven and earth.
