SRISAILAM

UNIQUENESS

The very reminiscence of Srisailam strikes the ears with a melody of hymnal music, recalling to the mind a wide variety of enchanting Sivalilas that send thrills in the spines, while the souls feel wafted towards the mount Kailas unknown to themselves. Meandering along its picturesque zigzag mountain path, if the devotee sights the tall imposing temple tower even from miles afar, he enjoys the thrill of attaining the Sayujya Mukti, and involuntarily utters 'Harahara Mahadev' that marks the consummation of his lifelong ambition of seeing that holiest of the holy thirtha kshetra, luring lacs of theists of all denominations since the ageless time. As this sacred kshetra enshrines one of the Dwadasa jyothirlingas, and reverentially called the Linga Chakravarthi by the Jangama Priests, in addition to being one of the eighteen principal Saktipithas with Bramarambika worshipped as the manifestations of Sakti, it is deemed as one of this much sought after centers of pilgrimage for both Sakteyas and Saivites since the Kritayuga. As the divinity hovering over this Mokshapuri is lifting many god-intoxicated, ever since Lord Maheswar at the request of bhaktas made this sacred hill as his permanent seat to liberating the Saranagathas in the too distant past, the pious terrestrials made the celestials descend down by their penance. It is one of the eight Sthaanas of Lord Siva, who came down here to appease the causeless anger of his youngest son Subrahmanya, staying here and made it his eternal abode captivated by the unusual glory and picture sequences of this lovely hills, shining like an emerald amidst the thick growth of primeval forests and to give succor to the devotees.
