Srisailam weekend trip
Lord Mallikarjuna swamy temple is second jyothirlinga temple of 12 & Goddess Bhramaramba is sixth Sakthi Peeth of 18. Neck part of goddess Sati fell down here according to Devibhagavatham. Both god & goddess are self manifested and are in one temple complex hence is rare of its kind. so it is identified as ILA – KAILASA, called as kailasa on earth. The temple has its own importance hence in our regular rituals we specify place and location of our existence with reference to this temple (Like Srisailasya… Vayavya… Pradeshe).

People prefer Abhishekam for Lord & kumkumarchana to Srichakra at goddess shrine.
We booked rooms from temple website mentioned above. Pathala Sadanam which is besides rope way is our stay. Rooms are good but food we have to arrange from outside.
