PALAKOLLU - KSHEERARAMAM

Let us now enter and feast our eyes with the archamurti of great antiquity. This temple facing East has a tall hundred and twenty foot high tower and is said to have been built towards end of the eighteenth century. The beautiful Vimana adorned with a shining kalasa atop the garbha griha in the Nagara style lends charm to the environs and heightens the sanctity of the shrine. With very many niches adorned with parivaradevatas vast courtyards, and sculptural adornments, this temple attained fame and is attracting ardent devotees throughout the year. The archamurti is moderately a big Sivalinga known as R,amalingeswaraswamy since it was installed, by Sri Rama but popularly called Ksheerarameswaraswamy. It is made of marble and so crystal white unlike the black granite lingas found in almost all the Sivaalayas. The belief current in this region is that this is a self manifested linga Swayambhu and bars on its back three stripes. A speciality It is adorned with Jatamakuta also. With many such rarities, this temple has turned out a sure refuge for securing mental solace, physical health and spiritual wealth. The Lord too is bestowing boons liberally. Hence unbounded fame. The annual Mahasivaratri festival celebrated on the Maghabahula chaturthi attracts huge crowds of Siva bhaktas. Saivagama worship is offered as done in all Pancharamams.

Having seen this, we have to go to Samalkota to avail the darsan of Kumareswaraswamy.
