BHADRACHALAM

There is nothing particular about the archi- tecture of the temple, and the edifices are built rather sturdily than elegantly.

However, the images of Lord Rama, Sita and Lakshmana are arresting by theirdivine beauty and anyone who meditates before the deity would feel that the image has not been made merely as a piece ofsculpture, as an icon of the Lord,by an ordinary Stha- pathi, but he's been done by some great mystic, in a moment of complete and ecstatic oneness with the Lord. Such arresting beauty in sculpture is not known anywhere else.

Bhadrachalam is thus the most famous temple not only in Andhra but also in the whole of India, of Sri Ramachandra. There are only two other temples of Sri Rama- chandra in the whole of Andhra viz., the Kodandaramaswami Alayam at Tirupati, and the Rama Mandiram at Ontimitta in Cuddapah District where Bhakta Potana got inspiration.
