holy kshetra is variously called, like Bhimaramakshetra, and
Kumararama kshetra. Both have legends and are justified. It is one
of the Pancharamas that brought undying fame to our Bharat and
Andhra Pradesh in particular. Its plus points are many and the
Sivalilas enacted here- are numerous, besides the seat of Amrit
linga. As this came under the rule of famous Chalukya kings, it was
called Chalukya Bhimavaram and hence the name Bhimaraanakshetra.
This sacred archamurti is popularly called Samalkota Bhimeswara and
the royal patronage it received is quite enormous and it peeps at
the visitors and elevates them.
