The Malikarjuna temple has fort-like towers, walls, and a rich foundation of sculptural work. The huge temple is built in the Dravidian style with towering towers and sprawling gardens and is considered to be one of the finest remembrances of Vijayanagar architecture.


Many rulers gave a hand to the building and maintenance of the Mallikarjuna Swamy temple. The first documentation emerged in 1 AD in the books of the Shathavahanas empire builders.

Eventually, Ikshvakus, Chalukyas, Pallavas, and Reddis, also the followers of the Mallikarjuna Swami, lend a hand for the contribution to the temple. The Vijayanagara Empire and Chhatrapati Shivaji individually worked towards improving the shrine and temple (building the gopuram in 1667 AD).

Worship was stopped here during the Mughal rule and the temple was destroyed in the ages of Nizam but resumed during the British rule. However, it was only after independence that this temple became well known.
