It is this archamurthi that is worshipped by Sun-god both in morning and evening, testified by the falling of sun's rays on the linga twice; it is here in this sacred temple, the Kalynotsavam of both Siva and Vishnu are celebrated with great gusto and fanfare on the same Vedika, same time every year during the Bhishma Ekadasi festival lasting for about a week; it is this Lord Siva worshipped by Sri Rama in the Tretayuga, and Arjuna in the Dwaparayuga, it is the devotees of this Lord Siva, Srinatha Kavisarvabhouma immortalised in his Bhimeswara Mahatmyam; it is with the blessings of this Lord Siva, Vemulavada Bhimakavi struck terror into the minds of mighty rules with his potent words that worked miracles; it is to this archamurthi the renowned Chalukya Bhima constructed high towers, massive prakaras, huge mantapas and mini-shrines inside, and so the temple is fittingly called Bhimeswaralayam after him; it is here in this temple precincts installed the icons of Vishnu and Siva under a peepal tree in proof of this being a Harihara kshetra, reverentially visited by both Vaishnavites and Saivites alike.

Renowned for such Siva Vishnu sammelana, and being the seat of Parvathi in the name of Manikyamba one of the eighteen manifestations of Mother Sakti, and Lord Siva in his Jyothirlingaswarupa; this famous ancient temple is occupying a prominent place among the temples of India.
