President of India Droupadi Murmu inaugurated ‘PRASAD’ project at the tourism facilitation centre in the pilgrim town of Srisailam in Andhra Pradesh.


About the Project:

  • PRASAD is a global charitable organization committed to uplifting the lives of economically disadvantaged people around the world. Our programs in India, Mexico, and the United State impact thousands of people annually.
  • PRASAD (Philanthropic Relief, Altruistic Service and Development)takes a holistic approach. Because the most vulnerable people face numerous hardships, addressing just one area of need isn’t adequate.
  • Significance:
  • PRASAD helps to develop wide-ranging, sustainable solutions to these challenges, to make life-changing impact possible.

Srisailam Temple 

  • Srisailam Temple also known as Bhramaramba Mallikarjuna Temple is situated in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh.
  • The temple is on the top of the Nallamala hills, on the banks of River Krishna.
  • The Lingam of the presiding deity Lord Mallikarjuna Swamy is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas dedicated to Lord Shiva.
  • It is also one of the most important Shaivite pilgrimage sites in India.
  • There are two separate temple complexes present inside – one is in dedication to Lord Mallikarjuna while the other one is for Goddess Bhramarambha.
  • Mention of Srisailam hills can be traced to the Nasik inscription of the Satavahana King Vasisthiputra Pulumavi in the 1st century AD. 
  • The Ikshavakus Kingdom ruled Srisailam from AD200 – 300.
