Awesome Architecture of Lepakshi Temple | Troopel.com

Lepakshi Temple in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh is famous worldwide for hanging pillars. The exterior of the temple has a huge dance hall with 70 stone pillars on the roof. One corner pillar is the famous Hanging Pillar which does not touch the floor of the temple at all and there is a small gap between the temple floor and the base of the pillar which gives the impression of a hanging pillar. There is a dance pavilion in the center of the temple. It is said that if a person lifts a cloth from one side of the pillar to the other, his wish is fulfilled. This unique pillar of the temple is a big secret for the millions of tourists who come here every year.

According to the legend, Lord Rama came here during his exile along with Lakshmana and Sita. The village is also considered as the place where Jatayu fell after Ravana was injured while being kidnapped by Ravana. Lord Rama and Lakshmana find Sita injured and Jatayu dying and Jatayu informs them of the fight to tell them that Ravana had gone south. Lord Rama then embraced him as shi le pakshi, hence the name of the village.

Le Pakshi is a Telugu word meaning shi arises, bird ‘. The temple is said to have footprints of Lord Sri Rama, while many believe it to be the footprint of Mother Sita. It is believed that after Jatayu was injured, Sita came to the ground and left her footprint and assured her that the water here would continue to give life to Jatayu until Lord Rama came here. There is a wonderful Shivalinga located here, Ramalingeshwar, which was established by Lord Rama himself after the funeral of Jatayu. Another Shivling nearby is Hanumanalingeshwar. It is said that after Shree Rama, Mahabali Hanuman also established Lord Shiva here.

According to mythological beliefs, this temple was built by sage Agastya. But according to historians, the temple was built in 1583 by two brothers (Virupanna and Viranna), who worked for the king of Vijayanagara. This temple is built for Lord Shiva, Vishnu, and Virabhadra. There are also different temples of the three Gods here. There is a large Nagling statue in the temple complex, which is made of a single stone. It is believed to be the largest Nagling statue of India, whose statue is made of black granite stone, with seven hood snakes carving on top of a Shivling.

There are many names of this city, there is a story behind each name. Must see once.| Ujjain Holy City

Ujjayini has had a special place in the major religious and political centers of India since ancient times. For this reason, the city was mentioned by different names in different periods. Thus Ujjayini, the holy land of Mahakal, has a unique feature due to its different names. The reasons for the various names of Ujjain are mentioned in the Avanti section of Skanda Purana by legends. Come, know about these names….

Kanakshranga

Kanakshranga literally means in Hindi is ‘suvarnamayi shikharon wali’. In the 40th chapter of the Skanda Purana Avanti Khand, there is a story related to the name Kankashranga, which is as follows- Shiva and Brahma bowed to the Jagatsarishta Vishnu installed in this city with suvarnamaya peaks. He prayed to Vishnu for a place to live in this city. Vishnu placed Brahma in the north of this city and Shiva in the south to be established and thus the city became the center of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma called this city as the Shranga of Kanakavarna, hence its name became Kanakshranga.

The Brahma Purana and Skanda Purana give a grand description of the buildings here. He was adorned with precious gems, mukta mini and torana gates and had golden vases on his tops.

 

Kushasthali

According to the 42nd chapter of Skanda Purana Avanti Khanda, the story related to this name is as follows- Brahma created the entire creation, then the task of protecting the world came to Vishnu, because Lord Vishnu is the follower of the world. Brahma covered this holy place with Kushas and prayed to Vishnu to be revered there. Thus its name became Kushasthali due to being covered with Kushas. ‘Kush’ is called the sacred grass which is used for the postures of gods and sages.

Avantika

‘Ava-Rakhena’ is used in the sense of protecting, so ‘Avantika’ means ‘able to protect’. The story of the name ‘Avantika’ in the 43rd chapter of Avanti Khand of Skanda Purana is as follows- Once there was a war between gods and demons. The gods were defeated in this battle, after which the Devas took shelter near Vishnu on Mount Meru. Vishnu asked him to go to the city of Kushasthali after attaining strength and renewable virtue. This city located in Mahakal forest is going to fulfill all the wishes. Here in every kalpa, deity, pilgrimage, medicine, seeds and whole beings are followed. This city protects everyone, so its name is Avantika city. According to the mythological history, the Avantis, the branch of the Haihayas, established this state and for this reason it was named ‘Avanti’ in their memory.

Padmavati

The story named Padmavati is as follows- 14 gems received after the churning of the sea were distributed in this holy place. It was here that the gods received gems. After receiving the gems, the gods said that in Ujjaini, we have all suffered from the jewels, so Padma, that is, Lakshmi will always reside here, and since then it has been named ‘Padmavati’.

The grand prosperity of Padmavati is described in the poems, plays and Pali and Prakrit texts of Brahma Purana, Skanda Purana and Kalidas, Banabhatta, Shudraka etc.

Kumudvati

At the core of the Kumudwati nomenclature is its attractive natural beauty. The story named Kumudvati is in Skanda Purana- When Lomash Rishi reached the city of Padmavati while doing pilgrimage, he saw the waterfalls of the lake, Tadag, Pallaval, river etc., full of waterfalls and lotuses. Seeing the places beautified by the Kumuds, it seemed as if the earth was beautified by many lunar. This Kumudini forest was always cheerful with the beauty and light of Chandra situated on Shiva’s head. Therefore, Lomash Rishi named it Kumudavati.

Amravati

In the Mahakal forest, Marichinandan Kashyap, along with his wife, underwent a severe austerity and found the boon that ’till the position of Sun and Moon, their offspring will remain on earth’ All the subjects of God, Asura and human form attained their growth. This Mahakal forest became full of opulence. There are rare ratnadis obtained from churning of the sea on this earth. Whatever are the divine and supernatural things in this world, they are all attainable in this Mahakal forest. All the gods are revered in this forest. This city became famous as Amaravati due to the abode of entire deities.

Vishala

Mahadev built this huge puri according to Parvati’s wish and said that this city will fulfill all the wishes. There will be residence of saints, deities and maharishis in it. Here, there will be a large area with all kinds of animals and birds and gardens with flowers and fruits and a golden archway with golden, gem and piers. In this way, this city became full of all kinds of prosperity and splendor and became famous by the name Vishala. It is clear from the ‘Vishala Bahuvistirna Punya Punyajanashraya’ that it was wider than other towns. Kalidasa sweetly imagined its vastness in Meghdoot through the repetitive use of ‘Srivishalaan Vishalam’.

Pratikalpa

According to the Puranas, the universe begins with every cycle. ‘Kalpa’ means that one day of the divine Sahasra era of Brahma is called Kalpa. In this way, the cycle of holocaust and creation goes on the earth. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva reside in this Mahakal forest. The creation of the world begins in every cycle. The different kalpas of Vamana, Varaha, Vishnu and Pitras etc. all started from here. This city has always been immovable even after the creation and destruction of the whole world. So Brahma said it would be famous under the name Pratikalpa and it became famous under the name Pratikalpa.

Ujjayini

‘Ujjayini’ literally means ‘excellent victory’. Once the demon king Tripura pleased Brahma with his incurable asceticism. Brahma gave him the boon of ignorance from Devas, Demons, Gandharvas, Vampires, Demons etc. Satisfied with the groom, Tripura started killing Brahmins, sages and deities. This made all the Devas afraid of him and they all went to Shiva. He prayed to Shiva for protection, then Shiva fought fiercely in the Avanti region from Tripurasura. He killed Tripurasura in three parts of his Pashupat weapon in the Avanti city and killed him fiercely. Therefore the gods and sages named it Ujjayini.

The Pali and Prakrit texts also mention this name with plurality. All the poets of Sanskrit literature have often used the name ‘Ujjayini’ in their texts. The same name is more prevalent in the modern era.

When the use of the word ‘Ujjayini’ started, it cannot be said with certainty. Panini (500 BCE) in his Ashtadhyayi has mentioned ‘Ujjayini’ in the Varanadi gana text. Kalidas and Shudak have also used the name ‘Ujjayini’ prominently. Hence it can be said with certainty that this name started being used from 6th century BC. By the time this name came into vogue, Ujjain became.

Bhogavati and Hiranyavati

The inclusion of these two names is as follows- Hiranyavati with the excess of Bhogavati and Suvarna, having all kinds of Bhog. Both these names are included in the names Amaravati, Vishala and Kankashranga.

All the names mentioned above give different characteristics of Ujjayini. If you look at the whole, then through these names a grand picture of Ujjayini becomes present. It is a real and safe city with vast area, full of opulence and splendor. It is a beautiful place of nature.

Troopel.com: Nomadic Community – Nomad communities are still awaiting justice for their freedom and existence

The nomadic community consists of people who wander to and from the same areas, visiting small villages and towns to live their day-to-day life. Their livelihoods include iron trading, performing tricks, dancing and puppet shows. According to the 2011 caste-wise census of India, the population of nomadic tribes was 15 crores, which has reached 20 crores at the present. With so many changes occurring in the society since past decades, the evolution of civilization is never stagnant. But there has been no change in the circumstances of the nomadic community, who are facing the same troubles and atrocities for generations. This huge community is still awaiting justice even after 74 years after India’s independence.

The British government declared radical armed rebel communities as born criminals under the Criminal Tribes Act 1871. The British ruled around 53 countries of the world, but this act was implemented only in India. At that time, the British used to believe that the blacksmith’s child is a blacksmith, the carpenter’s child is a carpenter, the doctor’s child a doctor, similarly the criminal’s child is a criminal. Therefore, the offspring of the fighting castes of India were also essentially considered as born criminals. These people who the Britishers considered armed rebels were in actually the genuine freedom fighters who fought against the invasion and rule of British in India. Various researchers and historians have accepted that the nomadic tribes have always been the defenders of Indian (Hindu) culture. The local peasant tribes carried out armed revolts against their British expansionist policies on their level and capacity, but even in the history books there is no mention of their existence and contribution.

The Government of India passed the Wildlife Conservation Act in 1972 after which a banned snake catching, bear and monkey plays. At the same time forests were barred and entry into the forests was prohibited. The Medical Practitioners Act, Clinical Establishment Law, Drug and Cosmetic Law and other laws considers nomad’s use of herbs and their traditional methods of medicine illegal. In 1982, the banned on rope tricks were imposed while, in 1995 the nomad community was banned from selling salts.

The situation of this community is worsening day by day, but most of the governments do not even consider them the citizens of their province. The negligence of the governments and the flag bearers of social justice is indeed a matter of concern. It is inhumane to place the stigma of being a born criminal on these people.

Troopel.com is running a revolutionary campaign of standing in solidarity with nomad community. If you too, want to be a part of this revolution, come forward and join troopel.com.

‘Ujjain bane aadarsh pavitra nagri’ will revolutionize Muheem Troopel.com- Atul Malikram

Troopel.com co-founder Atul Malikram is constantly engaged in new efforts to make Ujjain a holy city. Recently, 14 poor people died due to the consumption of alcohol in the religious city of Ujjain. On the subject, Atul Malikram issued a fury saying that no strict steps have been taken by the administration till date on the campaign being conducted for a long time, which is being watched by the whole country today. If the government had already taken the step of prohibiting meat in the city, then 14 people would not have died today. If the same kind of life is being lost in the coming time from the meat liquor being sold in the city, then the Chief Minister himself will be responsible for it.

Having meat shops in the religious city not only serves to hurt the heart of the devotees, but it is also harmful for the health of us people. Ujjain has been referred to as the holy city in India, but there is a lack of satvik conduct and lack of purity. Meat liqueurs sold around the temples hurt the devotees in huge amounts.

Troopel.com is taking the initiative of making the sanctity of Ujjain city an ideal holy city beyond the paper address, in which the wish of the channel is to be completely forbidden in the Mahakal city.
