Sri Meenakshi Agastheswarw Swamy, Wadapally

A Sri Meenakshi Agastheswarw Swamy, Wadapally Siva temple displays an interesting Sivalinga. A
hole in it is always filled with water. When the water is taken out, it replenishes itself again
The place is known for the temple of Sri Meenakshi Agasteswara Swamy which was
constructed by the Kakatiya rulers in the 12th century.
The significance of the temple is that there is a crevice on top of the Shivalinga which is
always full of water. Even if some water is removed the original level of the water is
maintained. There is no logical reason that can explain this phenomenon especially
since the Shivalinga is situated about 120 metres above the water level in the river.

Sri Meenakshi Agastheswarw Swamy, Wadapally

6000 years ago sage Agasthya Maharshi installed the idols of Sri Meenakshi Agasteswara and Sri Laxmi Narsimha at holy SANGAM of Krishna and Musi rivers in Wadepalli village of Miryalguda Mandal. For thousands of years the temple place remained in dense forest. During the time of excavation the idols of Lord Shiva were found in the temple and reinstalled the same. Once a hunter was chasing a bird, the bird wanted to save its life. So it hid behind the idol of Lord Shiva by covering it with its wings. Lord Shiva appeared to the hunter and asked him not to kill the bird. Lord Shiva assured the hunter that he would offer his brain instead of bird. Then the hunter agreed to him and had the brain of Shiva by inserting his fingers. As he did so, holes were made on his head. Goddess Ganga rose out of the holes, soon after this incident. There are holes on the SIVA LINGAM in which 10 figures can be inserted. Even after taking large quantities of water from the holes, the level of water does not go down. Once Sri Shankaracharya visited the temple along with his diciples.They wanted to find out the reason as to why the water level is not going down therefore they tied a thread to spoon and dropped it into the hole then it went inside deep and stopped. When they pulled up the thread, they found blood stains on that, then realised their mistakes and begged pardon from the God
