Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga

Srisailam’s town (as well as its mandal) is reputed on the flat top of Nallamala Hills 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. Srisailam has, since ancient times, played a dominant role in the development of religion, culture and society in India.

The epigraphical evidence shows that Srisailam’s history started with the Satavahanas who were South India’s first empire builders. The earliest known historical mention of the hill, Srisailam, can be traced to the Nasik inscription of King Vasishthiputra Pulumavi of the 1st Century A.D. Srisailam or Srisailamu? (r?aila?,? r?ailamu) located in Andhra Pradesh’s Kurnool district.

When Lord Murugan returned to Kailash after finishing his journey around the world, he learned of Narada Muni ‘s marriage of Ganesha This angered him.
He kissed their feet in obeisance while being restrained by his parents, and left for Krounch Mountain. Parvati was very upset to be separated from her mother, implored Lord Shiva to search out their mother.

They went, together, to Kumara. But, after learning of his parents coming after him to Krouncha Peak, Kumara went away a further three Yojanas. They wanted to leave a light on every mountain they visited before embarking on yet another hunt for their son on another mountain.

The place became known as Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga from that day on. Shiva and Parvathi are believed to visit this location on Amavasya (the day of no moon) and (the day of full moon) Pournami, respectively. Visiting the Jyotirlinga Mallikarjuna not only blesses one with endless riches but also names and glory and fulfils all desires.
A princess named Chandravati once wanted to go to the Jungle

They saw a miracle one day. A Kapila cow stood underneath a Bilwa oak, and milk spilled from all four of its udders, sinking into the earth. The cow kept on doing this as a regular routine chore. Chandravati dug this area and created what she saw stupidly.
There was a Swyambhu Shiva Linga, who was raising himself. It was bright and sparkling like the rays of the sun, and looked like it was burning

There, she built a massive Shiva Temple. He was very happy with Lord Shankara. Chandravati bore wind to Kailash. She and Mukti obtained redemption. Chandravati ‘s storey can be seen carved out on one of the temple ‘s stone-inscriptions.
