Significance

Sangameshwara water is known to cure skin ailments.This famed Shiva temple sees a confluence of devotees from TS, AP, neighbouring Karnataka and Maharashtra throughout the year, especially on Mahashivarathi and Mondays.Besides the temple being the ‘Inti Devudu’ (family deity) for thousands of families in the four states, the fulfillment of their wishes and the water in ‘Amrutha Gundam’ (tank) on the temple premises earned fame. Though the exact date of construction of this temple is not known, priests said it dates back to Treta Yugam, out of the four yugas or ages of mankind, as per the Hindu mythology. The first yuga was Satya Yuga, followed by Treta Yuga, Dvapara Yuga and present Kali Yuga, which began in 3,102 BCE at the end of Mahabharata war. , Lord Brahma personally installed the Shiva Lingam here. It is believed a dip in the holy tank on the premises of the temple is as good as taking a dip in holy Ganga and sleeping on the temple precincts is like sleeping at Kasi! There is also a strong belief that a small cave or guha at the holy tank leads all the way to Kasi in Uttar Pradesh. 

About

About

Sangameshwara Temple is an ancient temple located in Hyderabad. As per legacy says, that a rishi Kasi baba, while taking a dip in Ganga at Kashi lost his ‘kamandalam’ (an oblong metal water pot). The baba frantically searched for his lost ‘Kamandalam’ but in vain. The Baba wandered from place to place and came to Jharasangam and it is said that he found the ‘kamandalam’ in a small stream on the premises of this temple. To add to faith, the small cave opening still exists at the tank and a Kasi matam (choultry or resting place) near the temple,” explains Sangaiah Swamy, the temple priest. Regarding the belief that the tank water has medicinal properties and cures skin diseases, leprosy etc. Sangaiah Swamy narrates another story. “The water in Amrutha Gundam (holy tank) here is considered as Ashta Teertha or holy water. People believe it has medicinal value. Legacy goes that once, Kupendra Bhupathi, Maharaja of Kuppanagar, was on a hunting mission in Ketaki vanam (forest) and felt thirsty. He asked a shepherd for water. He showed him a small stream under a stone,” the priest explained.  “The king was suffering from severe skin ailments. When he drank the water, and cleaned his hands with it, the aliments vanished from all parts of his skin where the water touched. The queen Chandrakala Devi noticed this and expressed surprise at the radiant skin of the King. The King told the Queen about the water he took. The Queen was elated. Word spread and a temple was constructed.” Newly wedded couples from the families having faith in Ketaki Sangameshwara Swamy temple visit the temple religiously and take a dip in the holy water.
