RAMANATHA SWAMY TEMPLE.

The temple is considered a holy pilgrimage site by the Shaivites, Vaishnavites and Smarthas.
According to the great Hindu epic Ramayana, Rama wished to worship Lord Shiva, to absolve him of his sin of killing a Brahmin, during his war against the demon King Raavana in Sri Lanka. He ordered Hanuman, his ardent devotee to bring a Shiva Lingam from the Himalayas. Since Hanuman delayed in bringing the Lingam, Devi Sita, consort of Lord Rama made a small Lingam out of sand and is believed to be the presiding deity of the temple.
There are two Lingams in this shrine – Ramalingam, the Lingam made out of sand by Sita and Vishwalingam – The one Hanuman brought from the Himalayas. It is believed that Rama instructed to worship Vishwalingam first, as it was brought by Hanuman and the custom is followed till date.
