Sakshi Ganapathi Temple – Srisailam

13

This small shrine located about 3 km from Srisailam and frequented by pilgrims since ancient times. The traditional belief is that the Ganapathi in this temple keeps regular account of all the pilgrims to tender ‘Sakshyam’ (evidence) of their visit to this Kshetram and is named as Sakshi Ganapathi. The sculpture of this deity is exquisitely made holding a book in the left hand and ‘Kalam’ (pen) in the right hand in such a way as noting down the names of devotees.
