The word Srikalahasti is derived from 3 creatures. “Sri” refers to spider. “Kala” refers to snake. “HASTI” refers to elephant. Centuries before a snake used to worship lord shiva by taking pearls from underground. At the same time a elephant used to worship lord shiva by keeping aside the pearls and used to worship with water and flowers. So the snake decided to stay there and watch who does it. By the time elephant came and did the same. So the snake got anger and went inside the trumps of elephant. So by pain the elephant hits the head in rocks and slowly dies. The snake inside the trunk gets smashed and also dies.
A spider near the temple used to worship lord shiva daily. it used to build temple by its web. Even though the wind hits and destroys it again starts building it. So to test the spider lord shiva fired the entire web stings. So the spider got anger and went into fire.
So by seeing this lord shiva gave “VIMOKSHNAM” to these creatures. So the name “SRIKALAHASTI” is formed.
