India has very few temples of lord Surya deva and Arasavalli temple is one of them and it has got great story behind it.
The temple was once a famous temple for Hindus and people worship lord surya and offer prayers. But during the 17th BC, the area went under Nizam’s control and the Nizam king appointed Sher Mohammad Khan as Subedhar for this area. He destroyed many historical and famous temples of Hindus at that time. A pandit named Seetha Rama shastry was appointed to brief Mohammad Khan about the greatness and culture of Hindus.
He know very well in advance that the subedhar is going to destroy Arasavalli temple. So he has taken the swami’s Mulavirat and thrown it in a well nearby temple. Again after 150 years of this incident, a man called Ela manchi Pullaji has taken the mulavirat out of the well and he placed in the same place where it should be. The temple has got previous look and royalty again.
Every year, thousands of lord surya deva’s devotees visit this famous Arasavalli temple and will offer their prayers to surya deva. So , visit this historical temple at least once in your life time.
