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.
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.
