MUKTYAL - BHAVANI TEMPLE 

Antiquity of this kshetra dates back to Tretayuga and it is said that Sri Rama visited this thirtha kshetra along with Mother Sita. And worshipped this Temple's Spatica Linga installed by bali Chakravarthy. The other plus point it claims is river Krishna flows in northern direction instead of the usual eastern. Hence sanctity immense. It is believed that sins committed knowingly or unknowingly will be purged of with a single bath It embodies another unique feature of linking Tritayuga with Kaliyuga. Legends narrate that Viswakarma built a golden temple realising its sacrosanct glory. Krishna Mahatya eulogizes it, with the episode of Bali Chakravarthi's installing crystal linga now worshipped in the Mukteswara temple.

This Bhavani's shrine is quite ancient and was endowed lavishly by the ruling princes. The sthalapurna claims its construction to the devout king Narasimha Padmanabha belonging to Aiteya dynasty. Having enjoyed liberal royal partronage, it is architecturally imposing in dimensions and sculpturally enticing. There are many inscriptions testifying to its splendid past. The Mother's icon is superbly sculptured and her pleasant facial features are quite arresting and so win admiration by every one. The floral decoration interspersed with glittering jewels is enchanting and raises hands in veneration. Satwika puja is offered daily and she is madhuraahra priya. Periodical festivals are celebrated with unbounded zeal.

It is accessible by bus from the near by towns.
