Aalaya goes by another name of Mallikarjunaswamy Aalayam. It was
built by King Kakati Rudradev and acquired immense fame due to
munificent royal patronage, and adoration. The Sivalinga is white in
colour and installed on a broad panavattam. Just over and above the
Linga, there is installed a six-foot high icon of Mailardeva flanked
by His consorts Balija Medalamma and Gollaketamma. The icon reveals
the roudra - fierce aspect of Siva and holds in His four hands the
potent weapons, like Trisula, Khadga, Dhamaru and Padma. A
visitworthy Aalaya ! And a merit-conferring Lord !! It houses all
the adorable Saivate gods in appropriate minishrines.
lies at a distance of 14 km to Warangal, the district head quarters
town of the same name in Andhra Pradesh.
