Telangana State RTC will run special buses to Saleshwaram Temple during Saleshwaram Lingamaiah Jathara from Hyderabad MGBS (Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station – Imliban Bustand) from 26 March to 4 April 2018.
Saleshwaram Jathara will be held for four days during Chaitra Pournami, Full Moon day in Chaitra Masam as per Telugu calendar.
In 2018, Saleshwaram Temple will be opened on 29 March. There was Chandra Grahanam on Chaitra Purnima last year.
The significant feature of this temple is – the temple will be opened only for 3-5 days during Chaitra Purnima or the Full Moon day in April.
Saleshwaram Lingamaiah Temple is found about 10 km into Nalamalla forest. It is famous for its wedge-shaped waterfall, which seems to have been chiselled across a huge stone. The Shiva Lingam is in a cave next to the waterfall.
