Details of the Temple: The original swayambhu murti of the Lord appears on top of a hill opposite the current temple structure (Location: 17.262156, 78.458378). Since ascending the hill top may be difficult for devotees, the Lord wished to appear below also (at the current temple location). The current temple structure was built around 400 years back. It is beautiful and well-maintained. The temple is popular among the surrounding villagers.
