    Behind the main shrine, there are women who stay still and deeply engrossed in prayer, with their hands folded and raised vertically, seeking blessings from the deities for a child.

    The temple was built in the 11th century by Ayyanna Deva, a minister of the Kakatiya dynasty. The presiding deity is Lord Mallikarjuna, also known as Mylarudeva, along with his consorts Balija Medalamma and Golla Kethamma.
