Kaleshwara Mukteswara Swamy Temple is located in the town of Kaleshwaram, on the border of Telangana and Maharashtra. This is one of the Trilinga Desam or one of the three important temples of Lord Shiva. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The presence of two Lingams holding on to a single pedestal is an architectural marvel and is most iconic. Since Lord Shiva, is worshipped as Mukteshwara, and Lord Yama is worshipped as Kaleshwa, and hence the name Kaleshwara Mukteswara Swamy Temple. The temple has pilgrims from various parts of the world, and the mystical powers of the lord are highly commendable.
Legend claims that a long time ago, a Vaishya, (a person who hails from the community, which takes care of the cattle) had performed an Abhisheka to Lord Kaleshwara Mukteswara with hundreds of milk pots, and the milk evolved at the Sangamam, confluence of Godavari and Pranahita. Since then the temple is known to all the people across Andra Pradesh.
This temple is built in the Dravidian style architecture. It has several intricately carved pillars, and halls, which are used for conducting, festivals, and other social events like marriage, concerts, and pujas. The temple is known for the hole in the Mukteshwara linga and is believed that it can never be filled with water, which remains an enigma. However, many people attribute the connection of Shiv Linga and the river Godavari. The fish sculpture is iconic and receives a lot of attention.
Some of the important festivals are Ugadi, Shiva Ratri, and Arudra Darshan. The festivals like Phalguna, Deepavali and Ganesh Chaturthi are also the other festivals, celebrated with enthusiasm.
Lord Shiva protects the people from the wrath of Lord Yama. People recite Mrityunjeya Mantra and worship toward lord Shiva. People suffering out of diseases and other ailments, worship in this temple and gain good recovery.
