AMARAVATHI - AMARAMAM

The Archamurti

The Mulavirat is a tall, appears like a white vertical cylinder with round top made of marble, and measures fifteen feet in height and two feet in breadth. Very few are existing of this height, and even the other linga of abnormal height found in Draksharamam is shorter to this, and moreover it is made of black stone. This white linga is quite unique. For offering abhishek, the priests have to ascend a flight of steps. The vimana and other mantaps are done in the Dravidian style. Another object deserving attention and veneration here is Lord Siva's manifestations in five lingas. And all are installed in befitting mandaps in the campus only. They are -- Pranaveswara, Agasteeswara, Kosaleswara, Someswara and Parthiveswara. Visitors worship them all with equal fervour and zeal.

Let us proceed then to Draksharamam to avail the darsan of the Lord in a two storeyed temple, abiding in equally a tall fourteen foot -- high granite Siva linga. Needless to repeat that the cause of His emergence in the other four also is one and the same. Repetition irks and hinders progress.
