Tradition gives different versions regarding the installation of Malleswaraswamy's image in the temple. According to one version, it was Sage Agasthya, who installed the linga in the temple and called it Jayasena. Another version attributes the installation to Yudhistra. There are beautiful Utsavamurthis here and they are kept for regular darsan in the Addala Mantap - glass chamber. In the Sahyadri khanda of Skanda Purana, it is mentioned that Brahma worshipped Lord Siva with jasmines-malli flowers and so the archamurthi is called Malleswaraswamy. He is the kshetra palaka here also . Even the Sthalapurana gives varying accounts about the building and renovating of these temple. Though the controversy does not give precision, the Lord gives, sure emancipation, if prayed sincerely and soulfully. It is a visit- worthy, pace. Visitors normally miss not this holy shrine rather they visit it first before worshipping Mother Kanaka Durga. It is situated at the head of the flight of stairs.
