KAUDUR - RAMALINGESWARA AALAYAM

According to it, the priest of this place was ascending the hill everyday with his wife for attending to prayer services. Once during her pregnancy, she uttered that she could not come to Him for offering prayers as usual, and after delivery alone she would visit again. The merciful Bhagawan replied that He Himself would come down for her worship then itself, on the condition that she should not look back till reaching the foot of hill. Thanking Him, she started descending. She heard then the sounds of chariot wheels behind. Unable to resist the temptation, she turned to see the coming of Lord. At once the chariot broke and the wheels rolled down. And one of them fell into a tank and the other on its bank. As the splitting sound was loud, she fell down and died on the spot. Later some devotees built a temple installing the Sivalinga on the wheel in token of her devotion. Hence the wheel shaped panavatta. A similar incident is narrated about the Kotappa Konda temple also. This temple faces west and has all the parts except Nandi opposite the Sivalinga. In addition, it has six minishrines in the compound enshrining six lingas, one each. The successors of Cholas were Kakatiyas, who usually worshipped the Lord six times a day, and perhaps they might have installed them to represent their practice. There are many adorable deities, such as Gouri, Virabhadra, Ganapathi, exquisitely sculptured and fittingly installed. It was and is a largely visited Sivaalaya.

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