SANESWAR BHAGAWAN OF MANDAPALLI

THE TEMPLE

The temple complex is located in the centre of a moderate township and is built in the Dravidian style of architecture. It has five principal shrines, within the prakaram. The presiding deities in three of them through go by the names of Saneswara, Brahmeswar, Nageswara, they are siva lingas only. And they are made of black stone. There is an image of Saturn in the Saneswaralaya perpetuating the entire event. Draped in dark blue dress and adorned with garlands and jewels, it feasts the eyes of the beholders and blesses them munificently. It consoles them that one must face the shocks and losses of life with great composure as ordained by the All-Powerful Providence. Good and bad fortunes alternate in succession and each has its message, and it is to be accepted. Frankly speaking, the adorers experience a change coming over them at the sight or the image of Saturn responsible for the emergence of these five alayas. And it convinces them that one must accept the God given lot without grumble. Surely this laudable consolation, can never come from any shrine what so ever built anywhere and at anytime too. Its uniqueness lures theists and it is liberating them beyond doubt.
