Sri Parasurameswara Swami Temple, Gudimallam:
Gudimallam is yet another literal monument located in Sri Kalahasti Mandal in Chittoor quarter. The tabernacle is about 7 long hauls down from Renigunta Railway Station Junction. The significance of the tabernacle lies in the Lings that are housed in the Garbagriha of the tabernacle. 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 mortal form sculpted well within the limits of the linga. The bottom of the sanctum is at a low position compared to the bottom position of the Antarala and Mukhamantapa. There’s also an intriguing tale to tell that Gudimallam Shivalingam is believed to be a incarnation of the Trimurtis, with Brahma at the bottom, Vishnu in the middle and Shiva on top.
