AMARAVATHI

Lord Siva is called hereby another name - Crounchanatha and it has a story too. Soon after the installation, Sukracharaya, the asura guru who visited this kshetra questioned Brihaspathi in all sincerity, as to fitness of the selection of this place for it is on the bank of Krishna, and at any time, he thought, the flooded river would swallow the linga and temple. Brihaspathi then replied to the doubting Sukracharya that the broken bit of Taraka's linga fell on a hill called Chrouncha and hence there was no threat for the Amareswara linga from river water. Fearing harm to the sacred linga, river Krishna on its own accord later changed its course and started flowing from north to south for some distance near the shrine and continued its West to East course. This established incidentally the infinite power of Amareswara and the river's veneration for him.
