Padmakshi Temple is an ancient construction that dates back to the first quarter of the 12th century. It is a temple that is devoted to the Goddess Padmakshi. It is admired by tourists and locals alike for the sheer majestic nature of its architecture along with its religious significance.
At the entrance of the temple, a quadrangular column constructed with granite black is found. This is called the Annakonda Pillar. Carvings and inscription work done on the pillar have led many to believe that this was originally a shrine of the Jain faith made in dedication to the Jain Goddess Kdalalaya. The surfaces of the pillar are stunning to examine, and groups of visitors can be seen appreciating the workmanship behind this construction at all times of the year.
