That small, yet significant village Rayali, situated in the Atreya Mandala of East Godavati District, treasuring up an inestimable spiritual wealth is enthralling the beholders with its mere mention, or a single darsan for some centuries now. The oddity is so fascinating that even a casual reference hastens the listeners to it Lo! it springs from the sanctum sanctorum, making the visitors join their palms and bend heads when stood in front of it. Strangely enough, this eccentricity is embedded in the archamurti itself. The very concept more than designing delights the listeners for, the strangeness manifests on two sides-fore and rear This unique sculptural marvel by virtue of its queerness is receiving prayers and ritualistic offerings both sides-front portion exhibiting the exquisite carving of the Kesavaswamy, one of the august names of Sri Mahavishnu and the back side is adorned with the exotically captivating figure of Jaganmohini, the female aspect of Sri Mahavishnu, assumed for the distribution of nectar among the surasuras, when claims for absolute ownership by both were about to culminate in annihilation. The craftsmanship of the sculptor merits whole hearted obeisance and perpetual reminiscence.
