DRAKSHARAMAM

Second one is the image of Lakshminarayanaswamy-the kshetrapalaka installed by Sri Rama in the Tretayuga. Another object that lures the devotees is the peepal and neem trees grown combined into one. And underneath them the idols of Vishnu and Siva are found representing oneness between them. It is believed that the barren women beget children, if they make pradakshanams to it. So women in wet sarees are seen going round during the morning hours. This sacred shrine abounding in such spiritual wealth is particularly important to Andhras, since it is the Northern boundary for the Trilinga desa with Kalahasti in the South and Srisailam in the west. According to scriptural proof, the region lying with in these three holy places was called Trilinga desa and its people Telugus, so it commands honour. It has been held in high esteem since yugas and will command as long as the Telugu literature and language remain in use.
