DRAKSHARAMA

The temple depicts in its architecture, a perfect and harmonious blend of both the Chalukya and the Chola styles of temple architecture. In its wealth of inscriptions on its walls, it stands unrivalled by any other place. The epigraphy on the walls of the temples is perhaps the richest amongst all the temples of Andhra. There are as many as 381 inscriptions ranging from Saka 1002 (1080 A.D.) to Saka 1356 (1434 A.D.). There are inscriptions here of the eastern Chalukyan kings, western Chalukyan kings, the Chola and Kalinga kings and queens, in addition to innumerable votive offerings of their own ministers and generals. This wealth of inscriptions helps us to solve many a knotty problem about the political history of 'the Godavari tract during the 11th and 12th centuries A.D.
