sacred Siva kshetra has given birth to Errana, one of the great
poets, who translated Visa's Mahabharata into Telugu. This good old
temple built during the reign of Maurya Chandragupta contains a
grand image of Errana and is adored by literatures with great zeal.
The Sivalinga surprises the devotees by its colour - it is white on
and red on the other side. According to legend, the linga was
drinking the milk of a cow in the form of a serpent, and when a
cowherd beat the snake, it turned into white Sivalinga, and hence
the red colour indicating the blood that came out when received the
blow of the cowherd by his axe. Another special feature that strikes
the eye here is the enormous tank in which thousand elephants
according to local version were swimming at a time. It contains the
beautiful images of Chandi, Subrahmanya, Virabhadra, Kumaraswamy
lies in the Kandukur taluk of Prakasam district and was called
Netrapuri in the past and is accessible by bus from Kandukur.
