 Srisailam weekend trip

Srisailam weekend trip leads to beautiful environment of Nallamalai hills. It’s 210Km from Hyderabad(4-5 hrs). Hyderabad is well connected to all cities in India through airways and railways. To enjoy nature, prefer car or bike. From Hyderabad take outer ring road exit – 14 that leads to destination.

Srisailam Temple importance

Lord Mallikarjuna swamy temple is second jyothirlinga templeof 12 & Goddess Bhramaramba is sixth SakthiPeeta of 18. Neck part of Satidevi fell down here according to Devibhagavatham. Both siva&sakthi 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 Srisailam(Like Srisailasya… vayavya… pradeshe).
