DRAKSHARAMAM - MANIKYAMBA AALAYAM 

TEMPLE COMPLEX:

This august sanctum is built in the centre of town and has three massive prakaras with entrance on four sides. Normally devotees enter through the southern gate with a high pagoda over it. The court yards are vast and they house many mini-shrines and the temple office too. It is in the second prakara the devotees see a cluster of mandapas adorned with several adorable deities like Dunduganapathi, Virupaksha, Nataraja Saptamatrukas, Mahishasura Mardini, Anjaneya, Subramanya, Chaturmukha Brahma, Vatukabhairava, Astadikpalakas Navagrahas, Chandiswar, Suryeswara etc. The architecture o this temple dates back to 14th century, when the ruling kings particularly Anavema Reddy from Reddy dynasty beautified it with several additions, renovations, and the like. Inscriptions and epigraphically details narrate the successive line of donors who strove to raise the glory of this shrine by munificent donations and endowments till it was taken over by the State Government.
