This is an old Shiva Temple known as "KETHAKI SANGAMESHWARA SWAMY" situated at Jharasangam Village &

Mandal, Medak District. The Shiva Lingam is said to have been established by "Lord Brahma". It is said that Raja

"Kupendra" king of Surya Vamsha during "Krutha Yug" was ailing from skin disease has not found any remedies ti get

cure of his disease. One day in his routine hunting it happened to reach the Kethaki Vanam and found a stream, where

he washed his body. After reaching home he found that the skin disease was completely cured and in the same night

Lord "Sangameshwara" appeared in a dream, asked the Raja to construct sanitorium over "Shiva Lingam". The Raja

Kupendra constructed the temple over "Shiva Lingam" and converted the stream into a "pushkarini" and it is also called

as "Astha Theertha Amrutha Gundam". It is also called as "Dakshina Kasi".

Due to historical and religious importance, the people from Karnataka, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh(Telangana

Areas) visit the temple and pay homage to Lord, and perform "Gunda Pooja".

It is also said that Brahma after creating the world came to the spot for meditation. Since the existing "Bhanakara

Lingam" has been got installed by Brahma, Pujas are being performed by "Kethaki" Flowers (Generally Kethaki flowers

are not used for puja), and also the Pushkarini which is consisting of eight theerthas( Narayana, Dharna, rushi, Varuna,

Soma, Rudra, Indira and Datha) the Lord is called as "Kethaki Sangameshwara.
