Ravivalasa village in Srikakulam is famous for the Sri Endala Mallikarjuna Swamy temple. This ancient temple is devoted to Sri Endala Mallikarjuna Swamy, one of the forms of Lord Shiva. It is believed that the Pandavas visited this place during their exile. Festivals like Mahashivratri and special ritual ceremonies are organised here on Mondays of the Kartika month.This temple here has no roof and doors.
Strange to hear that a famous Sivaalaya is without the top, without the entrance, and the big linga enshrined in it has no doors at all too. It is a topless and doorless shrine, yet fulfilling the desires of the agricultural community of this region, when knocked at the door, as a matter of fact. Lord Paramasiva rushes to the rescue of His devotees to rain boons if they fall at His feet with pure hearts soaked in Sivanama. It is a good old shrine and was visited by Sri Paramacharya of Kanchi Kamakoti pitha. As the presiding deity - Mallikarjuna, the local name for Lord Siva has exposed to hot Sun always, He goes by the name of Endala Mallikarjuna Swamy. It is a worth-visiting ancient shrine of great fame.
