Kaleshwaram – Most Sought After Spot for Holy Dip During Pushkarams

Kaleshwaram is one of the most sought after spot for holy dip during Godavari Pushkaram 2015. The popular belief is that Kaleshwaram is the Triveni Sangamam or the meeting point of Pranahita River, Godavari River and the Saraswati River. 

Devotees will be taking bath at the confluence of Godavari Rivar and Pranahita River during the Pushkaram. It is believed that Saraswathi River flows underground along with Pranahita and Godavari rivers at Kaleshwaram.

Sri Kaleshwara Mukhteeshwara Swamy is located here. In the temple, two Shivlings are placed on single pedestal and one is called Yama and another Shiva.

Devotees, who visit this place, first offer prayers to Lord Yama and later to Lord Shiva.
The temple also houses Goddess Saraswathi and Surya, the son god. Thus the temple is home to unique murtis.

Kaleshwaram is around 130 km from Karimnagar in Andhra Pradesh.
