temple has many oddities and some of which are
contradictory to traditional building pattern. The first thing that
greets, rather surprise us when entered, is the five-foot-high black
granite Sivalinga resembling the erected male genital organ.
Besides, the uniqueness of the image of Siva sculptured in the fore
of the linga, sitting on the shoulders of a demon with deer in one
hand, water pot in another, gandragoddal on the shoulder, and ears
adorned with big rings and hands with wrist bands causes additional
surprise. This rare representation of Siva shares the characteristic
features of Mangoliod, and such icons with striking male features
and rare. Scholars and researchers studying this silpakanda from
several angles praised vociferously its many splendoured beauty and
multi-faceted novelty. It is a visit-worthy shrine of immense
lies at a distance of 18 km from Tirupati.
