Temple of Srisailam - General view Page20

Thus Srisailam with its ancient and holy tradition is a very important and ancient temple of Andhra and to this day attracts large number of pilgrims. Its sanctity dates back from the days of the Mahabharata. Even the puranas declare this as the place where Vrishabha or the sacred bull of the Lord Siva himself performed penance and that to please him Lord Siva appeared in the form of Mallikarjuna, with his consort as Bhramaramba. This temple with its wonderful bas-reliefs containing many Saivite stories and legends attracts the archaeologist, the sculptor, and the devotee in an equal measure.
