The shrine of Lord Mallikarjuna picturesquely situated on a flat top of Nallamalai Hills, Srisailam is reputed to be one of the most ancient kshetras in India. It is on the right side of the River Krishna in Kurnool District of Andhra Pradesh. This celebrated mountain is also named as Siridhan, Srigiri, Sirigiri, Sriparvatha and Srinagam. It has been a popular centre of Saivite pilgrimage for centuries.

The prominence of this Divya Kshetram is highlighted by the fact that while performing our daily household rituals we specify place of location of our existence with reference to Srisailam

Loved every bit of the journey, APSTRC Bangalore-Srisailam-Bangalore Bus service could have been a better one. Booked our stay at Gouri Sadan(Online Booking Only - Rs. 700[AC]/day/8AM-8AM). Delayed arrival at temple town did not deter our spirits and we made it to the sanctum within an hour. The Darshan in itself was peaceful and enlightening. We covered both Lord Shiva... More

I was lucky to visit during the annual festival, which sees an influx of thousands of pilgrims from all over India. There are processions during the day and music and dances at night within the boundaries of the temple. Plenty of sculptures. A very rewarding and unforgettable experience.

Lord Shiva temple located on top of Nallamala hills, Like most of the temple towns here you feel pleasantness and peace of mind. Options like community guest houses makes your stay hassle free.

One of the twelve jyotirlinga this Sri maliikarjuna temple is nestled deep in the forest of Andhra Pradesh. The arrangements in the temple are adequate but not so great. The normal darshan time is around 1-2 hrs depending on your arrival time. But the most frightening part about the place is finding accomodation especially for a solo traveler. I was... More
