Andhra Pradesh India Shiva Temples

Mukhalingam is a village panchayat in Jalumuru mandal of Srikakulam district, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Sri Mukha Lingam, as the very name suggests, is famous for the Temple of Lord Shiva with the Shiva Lingam having the face (Sri Mukham) of the Lord. Generally Shiva Lingams do not have the Facial carving and hence the Temple at Sri Mukhalingam is different from the other Shiva Temples. It is also known as Dakshina Kaasi. Sri Mukha Lingam, built on the banks of River Vamsadhara was a Glorious  place during the Eastern Ganga Chola era and served as their Capital City for over Six  centuries.
