KALUVAKOLANU - NANDI KOTEESWARA AALAYAM

This kshetra was sanctified by three holy lingas installed in three separate shrines by a devout feudatory Lord called Jayalakshmipati. They are called Nandi Koteeswaraalayam, Sivaalayam and Mukundaalayam. This place was once the capital of Kakatiya kings when its spiritual eminence spread far and wide. Later Muslim rulers brought incalculable destruction to the temple and its pious devotees. The speciality of the archamurti now worshipped is that there are seven Sivalingas placed one over the other by the marvellous craftsmanship of the sculptor. The panavattas have small holes around the lingas to enabling the abhisheka water flow down from top to bottom. So a single abhishek suffices the purpose and applies to the seven at the same time. Its uniqueness draws instant veneration to the Lord and to the maker too. His supreme artistry is quite unique, as it is not imitated by any one since then. As it is the only one of its kind, it merits indispensable visitation. This is found in the Nandigudi, but not in its fullest splendour; for,. the Muslim iconoclasts mutilated it. Yet, devout bhaktas are worshipping it still, as it was done in. the past. Though in ruins, it deserves visitation.

It lies in the district of Mahaboobnagar of Andhra Pradesh accessible by bus and train.
