AHOBALAM

As already stated above, Prataparudra Deva, who was the last and most powerful of the Kakathiya kings, installed the Utsavavigraha of this temple.

On his return from Srisailam, Prataparudra halted at a place called Rudravaram, which is sixteen miles distant from Ahobalam.

It was at this place, that the idol of the Lord was cast, and in order to commemorates his devotion the famous poem called Prataparudriyam was composed.

King Krishandevaraya had also visited this shrine on his return from the conquest of Kalinga and made offerings to the deity of a diamond necklace, wristlet, a gold plate and thousand pieces of gold.
