AMARAVATHI

For firm and final success, they again prayed for Siva's succour. He then directed Shanmumga, to break the Sivalinga that in as much as Taraka identified himself with Siva and was bearing on his body Sivalinga encased in a box and fixed to a neck chain, and by breaking the Sivalinga, he would become powerless. It proved true-Shanmuga with leis dreadful spear shattered Siva linga into pieces. At once Taraka died. The shattered pieces fell at five places and at the command of Lord Siva, devas consecrated those places with installation of Sivalingas for regular worship by devas and people. All these places are called Pancharamams Ksheeraramam, Amararamam, Somaramam, Draksharamam and Bhimaramam, and in each, a temple was built and linga installed by celestial dignitaries. Brihaspathi was consulted for guidance. Under his direction, a white tall Sivalinga that emerged in Amaravathi after the fall of Taraka was consecrated by Devendra and it was named Amareswaraswamy. Due ceremonies and Agamic canons were strictly followed during installation; and regular prayer services introduced for the benefit of bhaktas of both heaven and earth.
