PALAMPET - RAMALINGESWARA SWAMY AALAYAM

The world renowned Ramappa Aalaya is dedicated to Ramalingeswaraswamy, but not to Sri Rama, as the name Ramappa Aalaya goes. This Sivaalaya was named only after Ramappa, the immortal sculptor. It is a standing specimen of the Deccan architectural pattern of medieval times. It was built by King Recharla Rudra of Kakatiya dynasty in 1273 A.D., and is common with the Hanumakonda Thousand pillared Aalaya in sculptural patterns and architectural models. Its plinth resembling a star rises above the ground to a height of seven feet nearly. The profusion of Madanika figures and superb craftsmanship displayed on the,, inner and outer walls of the shrine affords a grand feast to the eyes. Mural carvings depict dancing poses of different kinds along with important scenes from Mahabharatha. In the garbha griha, the three foot-high Sivalinga installed on a 18-foot high, Panavatta arrests the attention of the visitor and enthralls him instantly. The metal image of Nagendra with its outspread hood heightens the grandeur of Sivalinga and detains for long. Many adorable deities adorn the beautiful niches in and out of the main Aalaya and other subsidiary ones built in its close proximity.

It is located in Palampet at a distance of 90 km to Warangal, the head quarters town of the same name in Andhra Pradesh.
