MAHANANDI

A huge Nandi lies in front of the Lord's shrine and possibly the place is called as Mahanandi Tirtha because of this Nandi. The tank lying behind is known as Rudra gundam and there are two more tanks called Vishnu gundam and Brahma gundam.

By the side of the main shrine is the shrine of the Goddess. The Srichakra in front of the deity is said to have been installed by Adisankara himself. The popular belief is that if one concentrates and meditates upon the God and at the eyes of the mother, he gets a Darsan befitting his samskara. The Mukhamantapa of the Devi is a recent construction at the instance of Bairavajosyula Mahanandayya garu.Behind the main shrine are three small sub shrines each containing a Shivalinga. It is stated that these if worshipped, will take one beyond the Sthoola,Sookshma and Karana Dehas to the Turiya stage.
