DRAKSHARAMAM - DRAKSHARAMAM

Uniqueness

What a sweet name ! And how spontaneous is the flow of melody that meets the ears at its very mention; grand is its composition, and grander is the denotation, and grandest is the spectacle of compassion emanating from that unique fourteen-foot-high Swayamvyakta linga, installed in a two-tiered temple of Drakshramam town, drawing thousands of devotees throughout the year from all parts of our Punya Bharat, since the Krita yuga onwards. Can it be otherwise?

For, it is in this holy place that the All-merciful Mahadev is abiding to conferring bhoga on the devotees, while living and moksha on death, unlike other similar archamurtis renowned for granting emancipation sans bhoga; it is this kshetra entered in the records as the Northern tip demarcating the boundary of the once Trilinga desa, now called Andhra Pradesh; it is to this kshetra of peace and plenty, Vedavyasa came as directed by Mata Annapurneswari for settlement; it is in this Dakshina Kasi, the great sage Agasthya stayed for years, after humbling the ever-growing Vindhyas; and it is here Dhakshaprajapathi lived, and Mother Parvathi burnt her self, when insulted by none but her own father.
