KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Adividevulapalli - Channakesavaswamy Aalayam  

Built in the twelfth century by one of the feudatory chiefs of the Kalyana Chola Chakravarti Someswar III, this forest abode of Lord Channakesava is aptly called Adavula Devulapalli Channakesavaswamy for its location in the thick forest. There are two temples - one dedicated to Lord Siva lying on the southern bank of river Krishna, and this Channakesavalayam located on the northern bank. Both of them are built according to the strict tenets of vastuk sastra and are superb architecturally. The sculpture is of no mean distinction in artistry. This temple faces east and possesses, essential parts, like garbhagriha, etc. with a sturdy compound wall and broad mahadwara surmounted by a high tower. The archamurti is Chaturbhuja Channakesavaswamy holding in three hands disc, conch, mace and the lower right revealing abhayamudra. The superb craftsmanship of sculptors peep at the viewers from every inch of the icon as exemplified by the smooth polish and dazzling sheen in addition to adorning it with excellent jewels, crown, yagnopavita, karnakundalas, etc. The Chalukyan style of architecture gratifies the visitors with several beautifully built mandaps, enshrining adorable deities, like Anjaneya, Garuda, Brahama, Vishnu, Mahishasuramardhini, Ganapathy, Bhairava, Adidampatis - Siva Parvathi, Valli Subrahmanya couple, along with the Surya Bhagawan flanked by Usha and Chaya, his consorts. Nithyanaimithika worship is offered according to agamas. Its location amidst Nature's bounty is a plus point for a steady stream of visitors round the year:

It lies in the Damalacheruvu mandalam in the Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh, commanding bus facilities.
