On the flat top of Nallamala Hills, the town (as well as the mandal) of Srisailam is renowned for the Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga. The Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga is one of Lord Shiva ‘s 12 Jyotirlinga, and is also one of the 276 Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalangal. Since ancient times, Srisailam has played a dominant role in Hindu religious, cultural and social history.The epigraphic evidence shows that the history of Srisailam began with the first empire builders in South India, the Satavahanas. The earliest known historical mention of the hill, Srisailam, can be traced to the Nasik inscription of the 1st century A.D. by King Vasishthiputra Pulumavi.Srisailam, or Srisailamu, is located in the Andhra Pradesh district of Kurnool, India. It is approximately 212 km south of Hyderabad and 179 km from Kurnool, on the banks of the Krishna River. It is spelled Shrishailam occasionally.

When, after completing his journey around the world, Lord Murugan returned to Kailash, he learned of Narada Muni ‘s marriage to Ganesha. This angered him.
He kissed their feet in respect, despite being constrained by his parents, and left for Krounch Mountain. Parvati, implored by Lord Shiva to look after their son, was very upset at having to be apart from her son.
They went to Kumara together. But, after learning of his parents coming after him to Krouncha Mountain, Kumara went away with three more Yojanas.
They agreed to leave a light on every mountain they visited before embarking on a further quest for their son on each mountain. From that day on, that place became known as Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga.
On Amavasya (no moon day) and (full moon day) Pournami, respectively, Shiva and Parvathi are believed to visit this spot. Visiting the Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga not only blesses one with endless riches, but also fulfils all desires by name and fame.
