    The Pancharama kshetras in South India.

    The Pancharama kshetras in South India all are situated in Andhra Pradesh.Pancharama is the name given to those five temples which are dedicated to Lord Shiva. These places are distributed over three districts Guntur, East Godavari, West Godavari of Andhra Pradesh in South India. All Hindus consider visiting these temples as very sacred. Pancha means five and Aarama is peace.According to legend, these five pieces were installed as Sivalingas at five temples by Indra, Surya, Chandra, Vishnu and Kumara Swamy at the respective places.

    The Pancharamas are Samalkot and Drakshrama in East Godavari District, Palakol and Bhimavaran in West Godavari District and Amaravathi in Guntur District. From Kakinada, APSRTC is operating special bus service. It will start early morning from Kakinada and complete the visit of all the five places and by night it will be back in Kakinada. The places are very famous and all the people of AP will make a point to visit these places at least once in the lifetime. I had been to all these five places multiple times. Samalkot, Draksharama, Palakol and Bhimavaram are very near to my native place. All these are Shivakshetras. Another important factor of Daksharama is the Goddess is one of the eighteen Sakthi pithas. On Shivaratri day if we can visit all these five places people feel the will attain moksha and there will not be any rebirth.

    This thread speaks about temples of Lord Shiva 'Pancharama kshetras'. There was another thread which spoke about the Pancha Naatha sthalas related to Lord Shiva Holy five in North and South India. Can the author or someone highlight the difference and significance?
