AMARAVATHI

Its unique position, prosperity, prestige and glory emanate from several awe-some factors that send thrills in the spines of god-minded, when read, or heard or sighted. It is here Lord Siva is abiding in a white fifteen-foot-high linga, installed by no other than Devendra under the aegis of Deveguru Brihaspathi, reverentially called Amareswaraswamy and soulfully worshipped since the Vedic age; it is this holy nagar deemed as one of the eighteen Saktipithas, and the Devi worshipped as Bala Chamundika; it is here the first ancient Andhra University was established; it is from this domineering capital city Sathavahanas ruled, it is here lived the master architects, designers, surpassing even Maya or Viswakarma in artistry of plastic arts, particularly sculpture bringing immortal fame to the state, and turned specimens; it is this holy place passed for Triputi due to the presence of the three covetable factors - daivam, thirtham, kshetram; it is here lies the world renowned Buddha Stupa displaying the superb craftsmanship in the sculptural art and regarded as second to none but to itself; it is to its educational institutions students from far-off China, Japan, Siam, Tibet and Ceylon came for higher studies; it is to this kshetra many royal families emptied their treasures to beautifying with temples and Vidhyapithas.
