BHIMAVARAM - SOMARAMAM

This was endowed liberally by Bhima, one of the enlightened rulers of the Chalukya dynasty. Later during the Virasaiva rulers of Vundi dynasty, the temple became popular when many additions were made and lured bhaktas in unending streams. The same town houses two more Sivaalayas with tall Sivalingas built and patronised by Chalukyas in the tenth century and they are called Someswaraalayam and Bhimeswaraalayam. Their origin is recent when compared with one housing of the big Sivalinga installed by Soma. In addition, the temple tank called Somagundam or Chandrapushkarini lies to the eastern side of the prakara. There are grand shrines here in the temple complex, for Janardhanaswamy, Kumaraswamy, Anjaneyaswamy, receiving regular worship. So this deserves to be called a Harihara kshetra housing Saivate and Vaishnavate gods as well in one campus.

With this the pancharamakshetra darsan comes to an end and we have to visit Amarnath in the high Himalayas.
