Though predominantly a Saiva kshetra of immense spiritual eminence, and a centre of pilgrimage this temple town is deemed a hallowed haven for a wide variety of Hindu gods of many denominations like Nageswara alayam. Kedareswara aalayam, Kanakadurga aalayam, Nrisimha aalayam, Sitladevi  aalayam etc. Each has a legendary back ground and does not lag behind the other either in popularity or enshrining adorable deity. It is a veritable Hari-Hara-Sakti kshetra throbbing with spiritual activities round the year at it. Its tourist appeal is not inferior too.

Among the many, the temple of Sitala Devi, popularly known as Baddipochamma deserves space and ardent worship. There are two independent temples in the same campus and enshrining the self same goddess Sitala Devi, but there is a discernable difference in the archamurtis. The temple being ancient is vast in dimensions and majestic with elegant sculpture. It faces west and is said to have been built by Baddige Bhupal, a feudatory of great renown. The august icon of Sitala Devi enshrined in the garbha grisha is made of granite and grand to look at with hands adorned with sword and anaatra. Her facial features are masterly chiselled and elevate the viewers at first sight itself. And the other granrtie icon installed in a pretty shrine outside, but in the prakara itself is a Chaturbhuja Devi. She is comparatively less benign, but grand, inviting reverent attention. She holds in her four hands, Trisula, Fire-pot, dhamaru and broom and is consonance with her fierce a sect. She is receiving Agamic puja regularly.

It lies 25km of Karimnagar, the district head quarters town of Andhra Pradesh connected by bus.
