One of South India's best medieval temples, the Ramalingeshwara Temple is an architectural wonder. Set amidst picturesque natural beauty, the temple boasts well-chiselled walls and ceilings, perfectly carved pillars and beautiful sculptures. It is popularly known as Ramappa Temple after its sculptor, Ramappa, who built the temple during the rule of Kakatiya king, Ganpati Deva, around the 13th century. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and a Nandi (bull god) statue stands facing the main shrine. It is said that this magnificent temple was built in almost 40 years!
