Pushpagiri Temple Complex:
Pushpagiri Temple Complex is a temple complex in Andhra Pradesh, India, located in the Kadapa district. It was founded in the 7th century CE and is linked to some of the region’s oldest temple congregations. It is not to be confused with the Buddhist remains of Odisha’s Pushpagiri Vihara.
The origins of the temple complex are the subject of several stories. According to tradition, it was created during the Satya Yuga when Garuda accidentally spilt a drop of ambrosia into the nearby lake while attempting to liberate his mother from enslavement. Another tradition holds that Lord Rama worshipped Lord Vaidyanatheswara here during the Treta Yuga, and the flowers utilized in the ceremony collected to the point where a flowery mound was formed, hence the name Pushpagiri.
Because of its renown for worshippers giving up their lives in devotion to Lord Shiva, the Skand Purana’s Srisaila Khanda celebrates this temple as ‘Nirvrutti Sangameswara.’
