CAVE TEMPLES
Hindu
7th - 8th C

Bhairavakonda is 100 km from Satyavolu. The journey is rough, but the location is beautiful. There are eight cave temples deep in the mountains, by a flowing mountain stream. The linga is deified here. There are lion sculptures on the pillars of cave No. 5, which are very similar to those in the cave temples of Mahabalipuram, built during the Pallava reign.
The porch of cave 5, wet with recent rains.
