About The Temple:
rayalavaru Gudimallam is yet another historical monument located at Sri Kalahasti Mandal in Chittor. The temple is about 7 miles away from Renigunta Railway Station Junction. The significance of the temple lies in the Lings that is housed in the Garbagriha of the temple. The Linga is said to have been discovered in the 1st century or the 2nd century BC.
The Linga depicts the true nature of a Shiva linga, with the human form carved well within the limits of the linga. The floor of the sanctum is at a low level compared to the floor level of the Antarala and Mukhamantapa. There is also an interesting tale to tell that Gudimallam Shivalingam is believed to be a manifestation of the Trimurtis, with Brahma at the bottom, Vishnu in the middle and Shiva on top.
