This’ temple is behind Kodanda Rama Temple at a slightly higher elevation. The idol of Maruti in this temple was installed by Sri Vyasaraya during the regime of
krishnadevaraya. Nearly there are temples of k a n ga n at ha and Ananthashay ana.
I f we go ahead we can see on the right side a dilapidated tower and a temple. This is the temple of Achyuta. On either side there are rows of stone pandals. This was the market of pearls and gems. It was called “Side Bazar” (The market of Prostitute). The reason for such an odd name is not known.
