Umamaheshwaram is a temple dedicated Lord Shiv. Located in picturesque Nallamala forest range - around 100 kilometers away from Hyderabad on the Hyderabad-Srisailam highway.
Umamaheshwaram is considered as the Northern gateway of Srisailam which is one of the jyotirlingas. It is mentioned in many Vedas that visit to Srisailam is incomplete without a visit to Umamaheswaram and saakshi ganapati temple. Situated atop the hill and covered by dense forest, it is very close to PapaNasanam.. This is the perfect place to visit, if you want to combine your temple visit with a picnic.
