Srisailam is a prominent religious destination located on the banks of Krishna River in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. Well known for the Bhramaramba Mallikarjuna Temple, which is one amongst the 12 Jyotirlinga temples of India, Srisailam draws countless religious travellers every year. Another reason for its popularity is the Srisailam reference in the Vedic stories of Mahabharata. Some of the prominent attractions here are Bhramaramba Devi Temple, Mallikarjuna Swamy Temple, Hemareddy Mallamma Temple, Akkamahadevi Caves and Srisailam Sanctuary. Akkamahadevi Caves is one of those places where the journey is as amazing as the destination. The Ista Kameshwari Temple, located 16 km from Srisailam, is another unmissable place. After crossing the temple, you can head to some beautiful waterfalls and valleys around the region.
