LOCATION

This is situated on mountain named Shri Shaila by the banks of the Patal Ganga, Krishna river in the state of Andhra Pradesh of Southern India. It is also known as Kailash of the south. It is said that if a person simply sees the tip of the mountain he will be freed of all his sins and worries. He will also be freed from the cycle of life and death. The architecture of this temple where this Jyotirlinga is situated is very beautiful with delicate structural design.

This whole area is full of forests of Kadali, Bilva trees, mountain ranges and Patalaganga (Krishnaveni river). All of them echo from these joyous voices of devotees.

STORY

The story behind the Jyotirlinga is very famous. When Shri Ganesha got married before Kartikeya, Kartikeya got very angry and went away to the Kraunch Mountain. All gods including Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati tried to console and bring back Kartikeya. But all in vain. At last Shiv-Parvati themselves went to the mountain. Hearing that his parents are coming he went even further away. Eventually Lord Shiva assumed the form of a Jyotirlinga and resided on the mountain by the name of Mallikarjuna. Mallika means Parvati while Arjuna is another name of Lord Shiva.

The architecture of the temple is very beautiful and intricate. Every year there is a fair organised on account of Mahashivratri, Just adjacent to the temple is another holy shrine of Goddess Jagdamba Here she is known as Bhramaramba

NEAR BY TEMPLES

Bhramaramba Shrine Located adjacent to the Mallikarjun Temple is a shrine dedicated to Goddess Jagdamba who is known as Bhramaramba here. The Bhramaramba shrine is considered to be of great significance. Legend has it that Durga is said to have assumed the shape of a bee and worshipped Shiva here, and chose this place as her abode.
