for possessing one of the very few Aalayas for Brahma, this little
town boasts of a holy Sivaalaya enshrining a Sivalinga, going by the
name of Nageswaralinga. Deemed as Kasi for having one hundred and
one temples, this town had a glorious past with historical evidence
in the form of inscriptions. Now only eight are existing, but they
too are not properly maintained. This Nageswaraalayam houses in its
campus a big size Nandi equal to Lepakshi one in polish and furnish.
This was built by Eastern Chalukyas. The fine sculpture adorning the
walls and vimana are quite impressive.
