Kaleshwaram

Kaleshwaram is a village in Mahadevpur Mandal in Jayashankar Bhupalpally district, Telangana. Kaleshwaram is at the juncture of the rivers Godavari and its Pranahita tributary.

Bus service is available from Hyderabad, Warangal, Parkal, Karimnagar, Manthani, Godavarikhani and Peddapalli.

Access to Laksha Bilwapatri Pooja is by request to Dewasthanam officials at least one month in advance

It is the site of a temple of the Hindu god Lord Shiva. The temple is significant because of the two Shiva Lingas that are found on a single pedestal. These Linga are named Lord Shiva and Lord Yama. Collectively, they known as Kaleshwara Mukteswara Swamy. Kaleshwaram is one of three Shiva temples mentioned in Trilinga Desham, or "Land of Three Lingas."

The holy place draws tourists during the Karthika Month of the Indian Calendar, 16 November – 15 December. Holy baths are held during 6-17 of December. People who bathe here first visit Lord Ganesha, then pray to Lord Yama and then to Lord Shiva. 


Kaleshwaram is the site of the famous Shiva temple called "Kaleswara muktheswara swamy", which is on the border of the Indian states of Telangana and Maharashtra.

The Mukteshwara Swamy Temple is uniquely significant because of the two Shiva Lingas that are found on a single pedestal. They are named Lord Shiva and Lord Yama, collectively known as Kaleswara Mukteswara Swamy.

Kaleswaram is one of the locations of the three Shiva temples mentioned in Trilinga Desham (Land of Three Lingams) and is another name for the Telugu-speaking region. (The other two locations mentioned are Draksharamam and Srishailam.)

Kaleswaram is also called Dakshina Triveni Sangamam, as two rivers meet here along with a third, the illusionary flow of Antarvaahini. It is said that a long time ago one of the Vaishyas had performed an abhisheka to Kaleswara

Mukteswara with hundreds of milk pots, and the milk evolved at the sangamam of Godavari and Pranahita, hence the name Dakshina Gangotri (the other being Allahabad, or Prayaga).

A large number of tourists arrive during the Karthika Month of the Indian Calendar (16 November – 15 December) and Maha Shiva Ratri.

The temple is open from 4:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and 3:30-9:00 p.m.
