The popular Mallikarjuna Swamy Temple is situated on the southern bank of Krishna River, at a height of about 457 metres. The temple was built by King Harihara Raya of Vijayanagar, some six centuries ago. It is built in typical Vijaynagar architectural style and houses one of the twelve ‘Jyotirlingas’ in India. The sanctum is a shell like structure that enshrines Lord Mallikarjuna.
