Sangameshwara Temple Kurnool History :
After their visit to Srisailam Mallikarjuna temple, Dharmaraja, the eldest of the Pandavas, is believed to have constructed the wooden Lingam of the temple, Sangameshwaram. The temple is considered a place of religious sanctity because it is built at the confluence of seven rivers and remains visible for two months. (The Bhavanasi, the Krishna River and the five rivers that merge into it beforehand, namely Veni, Tunga, Bhadra, Bheemarathi and Malapaharini).
Now, when the water levels are low in summer, the Sangameshwara temple kurnool is visible for several days. On those days, the temple will also be open to the public. The temple has been continuously resurfacing each year in the summer months since 2003. However, because of the water, this age-old architecture is under pressure.
For 40-50 days, the Sangameshwara temple remains open and devotees are allowed to visit. As the temple is surrounded by water, people are brought in vessels. The wooden Lingam inside the sanctum also conducts many poojas and rituals.
