The Telangana part of Andhra Pradesh seems to have monopolised the worshipping deities of almost all denominations, of course, preference is given for Siva in his multifarious names and aspects. Yet, temples for Subrahmanya, the darling boy of Adidampatis are less in number and his role is not properly realised, it seems. This indeed is similar in the case of two other parts like Rayalaseema and coastal parts of Andhra Pradesh. Among the few that are built exclusively for Subrahmanya, the lone Subrahmanya Aalayam built in Nagarkurnool by one great devotee called Govindarajulu Subba Rao merits mention. This little town is housing five great and ancient Sivalayas, one Pandu Ranga aalayam and many mandirs for worshipful deities and the like.

This lies in Vinoba Nagar Colony and is adorning a little hillock like high mound. Its unique circular shape resembling Kerala temples is its star attraction. Both in mornings and evenings great rush for the darsan of Lord Subrahmanya is seen. Regular agamic worship is offered with great fervour. The charming statue of Subrahmanya was installed on the auspicious Subbaraya Shasti. Among the Periodical festivals Subrahmanya Shastri draws huge crowds. Muruga Bhagawan's splendour breaks through several cultural programmes arranged then on a grand scale.

It lies in Nagarkurnool town of Andhra Pradesh, accessible by bus.
