Importance of SRI KALAHASTEESWARA- SIVA Devotee


Srikalahasti is one of the ancient holy places of our country. It is believed that many saints attained 'mukthi' (Salvation) at this unique and important Sivakshetra. The presiding deity of this punyakshetra is Srikalahastheeswara.

The Sivalinga of Srikalahasthi is one of the five supreme lingas representing the five great fundamental elements namely Fire, Water, Air, Sky and Earth. The lord appears here in his self-manifested form. Among the Panchabhuta lingas, Srikalahastheeswara is worshipped here as Vayulingeeswara. When all the lamps in the sanctum glow steadily, one can notice two lamps flickering now and then, proving the Lord's inhalation and exhalation

Srikalahastheeswara swamy temple is 40 kms away from Tirupati, situated on the Tirupati-Nellore Highway.

It is also known as 'Dakshina Kailasa' and 'Dakshina Kasi'. Amongst the most sacred Shivite temples, the temple of Srikalahastheeswara has a unique position. According to history, the temple was built during the Pallava and Chola period. The temple architecture is rich and splendid.

The name Srikalahasthi is a compound of three names.



 SRI KALA HASTI

Sri' meaning spider, 'Kala' meaning serpent and 'Hasti' means elephant.

They worshipped Lord Siva and attained salvation. It is stated that when the lord appeared before them and asked them to express their wish, they requested him that the place be named after them.

The most important Devote was

'Bhakta Kannappa'


The another Devote was 'Bhakta Kannappa' he give his Eye’s to Lord Siva and Changed his name as 'Bhakta Kannappa' before his name was “Tennan”

Lord is stated to have all the Navagrahas on it. Once upon a time a hunter worshipped the lord. It so happened that the Lord's eyes began to bleed profusely and the 'hunter-devotee' spontaneously plucked his own eyes with an arrow and placed them on the Linga. This act of absolute surrender and devotion, earned him the name - 'Bhakta Kannappa'.

The River we call as - Swarnamukhi

The river Swarnamukhi which flows on the northern side of the temple adds to its beauty and sanctity. The presiding Goddess here is 'Sri Gnana Prasoonambika' - the flower of divine knowledge. Besides being a 'vara prasadini' (wish fulfiller) she is also 'gnana prasadini' (knowledge provider). On Fridays, the resplendent sight of the Divine Mother, when she is clad in 'Bangaru Pavada' (Golden Robe) permeates the heart of an ardent devotee and fully satisfies ones tender longings to behold the 'Lokamatha' (Mother of the world) within these mortal eyes.
