About Seelesvara and Siddesvara Temples Information-Manthani

These two single shrine temples stand in a single complex on an elevated place. Each temple consists of garbha griha, antarala and mukha mandapa. It is said that the Kakatiya army of Prola II, which defeated Gundaraja of Mantrakuta, was headed by two army chiefs named Seelappa Naidu and Siddhappa Naidu, who in memory of their victory over Gundaraja, constructed these two Siva temples after their names known as Seelesvara and Siddhesvara at Mantrakuta.Reportedly these two temples were in ruined condition till recent times. Consequent to the renovation work undertaken by Sri Loke Ramanna the resident of Manthani in 1942, these temples now stands in a good state of preservation.

On architectural and stylistic grounds these two temples appear to have been built earlier than Gautamesvara temple probably in 12th century A.D.
