SRISAILAM

THE KSHETRA AND TEMPLE

The Sthalapuranam gives an elaborate account of this Srisaila kshetra covering a very wide area of 30 x 30 amadas with four entrances-Tripurantakam in the East, Siddhavatam in the South, Alampuram in the West and Umamaheswaram in the North, encompassing in its wide area as many as nine holy peaks, nine rivers, nine caves, nine towns, nine wells and nine Matapeetas. Skandapuram devotees as many as 12,500 slokas to bring about the glory of this famous Saivakshetra, besides the Vedas and epics growing eloquent in description on this. The sacred shrine atop the hill of 1500 feet above sea level, looking like the crest jewel of the Nallamala hills looks upon the holy river Krishna called Patalaganga here. It is encircled by a high massive outer prakaram with a 6 feet wide wall on all four sides, measuring 2120 feet in length and raises to an average height of 20 feet with three gateways-the Northern one called Sivaji gopuram; the Southern, Hariharya gopuram, and the Eastern Krishna Devaraya gopuram.
