Komuravelli Temple near Warangal – Komuravelli Mallanna Temple

Komuravelli Mallanna Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Shiva.  Komuravelli Temple is located on Karimnagar - Hyderabad Highway and is around 22 km from Siddipet and 85 km from Hyderabad. Shiva is worshipped here as Mallanna – a fierce form. He is flanked by Kethamma and Medalamma. The deity is also known as Mallikarjuna Swamy.

Komuravelli Temple is located atop a hillock. The temple is unique as Shiva is worshipped here not in Shivling form but in murti form. The clay molded deity of Lord Mallikarjuna swamy is believed to have been made more than 500 years ago.

It is widely believed that prayers offered at the shrine of Komuravelli Mallanna will be answered.
It is believed that Shiva married Kethamma from Yadava community and Medalamma from the Linga Balija community and settled here. Hence the two consorts.

The temple has a rajagopuram typical of South Indian Temples. There is a Nandi in front of the shrine. A huge shivling made using cement and painted black can be seen from a distance.

Pedda Patnam is an important ritual at the shrine and it is observed on Shivratri day and attracts near 100,000 devotees.  Another important festival is the Brahmotsavam during Makar Sankranti.
