Temple History

He learned of Ganesha’s marriage from Narada muni when Lord Murugan returned to Kailash after completing his journey around the world. He was upset with this. He kissed their feet in obedience while being restrained by his parents and left for Krounch Mountain. Parvati was very upset that she had to be away from her father, asking Lord Shiva to look for her son. They went together to Kumara. Yet, after hearing about his parents coming after him to Krouncha Hill, Kumara left for another three Yojanas. They decided to leave a light on every mountain they visited before embarking on another quest for their son on each mountain. It came to be known as Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga from that day. Shiva and Parvati are believed to visit this place respectively on Amavasya (No Moon Day) and (Full Moon Day) Pournami. Visiting the Jyotirlinga Mallikarjuna not only blesses you with endless riches but also names and fame and fulfills all desires.

Srisailam Temple

Once, to do penance and meditation, a princess named Chandravati wanted to go to the forest. To this end, she chose Kadali Vana. She was seeing a miracle one day. Under a Bilwa tree stood a Kapila cow, and milk poured from all four of its udders, falling into the ground. Every day the cow tried to do this as a regular chore. Chandravati dug this area and created what she saw stupidly. There was a Swyambhu Shiva Linga, who was self-raising. It was bright and shiny like the rays of the sun, and it seemed like it was burning in all directions. In the Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga, Chandravati prayed to Shiva. There she built a huge Temple of Shiva. Lord Shankara loved her very much. Chandravati was raised to the air of Kailash. She and Mukti got redemption. Chandravati’s story can be seen cut out on one of the temple’s stone inscriptions.
