    The Palamuru region, which includes Mahabubnagar, Nagarkurnool, Wanaparthy, Gadwal, and Narayanpet, was filled with spiritual energy as devotees celebrated Maha Shivaratri on Friday. Many temples were filled with worshippers chanting ‘Om Namah Shivaiah!’ as they paid tribute to Lord Shiva.

    In Mahabubnagar, thousands of people observed fasting and Jagaram, visiting Shiva temples and offering special prayers and Abhisekham to seek blessings. Devotees from far and wide embarked on pilgrimages to nearby temples, breaking their fast only after performing rituals and prayers to the Shivalinga, sustaining themselves with fruits and juices.

    Legend says that Lord Ramalingeswara was consecrated by Sri Rama himself on the panchamukha hill near Raikal village. The lingam, marked with Rama’s arrow symbol, is a reminder of divine intervention. Believers tell the story of Lord Ram installing the Shivalinga in Rameshwaram during his journey with Sita, leading to the construction of a temple for Mahashivaratri celebrations.
