Siva Sanjeeva Konda Temple Legend
According to legend, during Tretayuga, Lakshmana was hurt during the final battle and lost conscious. Lord Rama ordered Anjaneya to bring Sanjeevini Parvatham so that Lakshmana can be revived. While Anjaneya on his way to Lanka, Sanjeevini dropped on this hill, hence the name Sanjeeva Konda. This hill possesses medicinal properties which heal all types of diseases.
Lord Siva at Srisailam, once decided to stay closer to the devotees for which he first stepped on Nagarjuna Konda and about to place his second step on Sanjeeva Konda. For which, Sanjeeva Konda then raised a concern about bearing his weight. Lord Siva got angered for his ignorance and educated the hill. Lord Siva then said that Sanjeevini on this hill will be effective only when you left the pride. Sanjeeva Konda then realised for his ignorance and pleaded Lord Siva for forgiveness. Pleased Lord Siva, self-manifested on this hill.
