The town (as well as the mandal) of Srisailam is famoused for the Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga on the top of Nallamala Hills. The Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva and is also one among the 275 Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalangal. Srisailam has played a major roal in the Hindu religious, cultural and social history since from ages. The epigraphical evidence reveals that the history of Srisailam started with the Satavahanas who were the first empire builders in South India. The earliest known historical mention of the hill, Srisailam, can be traced to the King Vasishthiputra Pulumavi’s Nasik inscription of 1st Century A.D. Srisailam or Srisailamu (Śrīśailaṁ, Śrīśailamu) is situated in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh, India.
