Later, each was dedicated to Lord Siva under different names with installation of archamurtis by high divinities, like Devendra making Amareswara Vigraha Pratishta in Amareswaraswmay Aalayam in Amaramam, now goes by the name of Amaravathi; Someswara Vigraha by the Moon-god Chandra in Someswaraalayam in Somaramam, now called Gunupudi; an integral part of Bhimavaram town; Ramalingeswara Vigraha by Sri Rama in Ramalingeswaralayam in Ksheeraramam, now called Palakollu; Kumarabhimeswara Vigraha by Kumaraswamy in Kumarabhimeewaralayam in Kumararamam, now called Samalkota; and tie last being Draksharama, where the Swayambhulinga was installed by Vyasa in Bhimeswaraalayam now called Draksharamam. These five kshetras were deemed highly holy, and so celestials chose them for habitation. Dhaksha made Daksharamam as his abode and hence called Daksharamam; and perhaps an account of the bumper crops of grapes grown on this soil, it was fittingly called Draksharamam later. This has many legends worth knowing and they exemplify the glory of this place. The self immolation of Sati, the Lords spouse occurred here-Read AGS NO. 3 for full account.
