SRISAILAM

It is this holy kshetra visited by the Pandavas during their Vanavasa; it is in this holy kshetra, everyone is permitted to offer personal worship to the Siva linga, eradicating thereby religious inequality and social ostracism; it is here alone every caste has built choultries for the convenience of visiting pilgrims and making annadana through cut the year; it is here Virasaivas established one of their four main Maths for carrying on several noble ministrations; it is this place that give Sivaji the invincible sword that brought him spectacular victory over Muslims; it is here Buddhism held its sway under the aegis of Acharya Nagarjuna; it is in this region, particularly the Patalaganga area found special stones for making Sivalingas; it is here Siddhas, one of the principal sects of Saivism, practised many yogas to attain Siddhi, and mastered Rasayoga-the system of changing base metal into gold; it is here the Kapalika Saivas attempted to offer Sri Sankara as narabali to the Goddess; and it is here built the Hydroelectric Project across the river Krishna in the recent past.
