Uma Maheshwara Swamy temple is located in a picturesque Nallamala forest range near Mannanur Village, Amrabad Mandal. The temple dates back to 2nd century and belongs to the reign of Maurya Chandragupta. The temple houses a Shivalinga, which has two colours – white on one side and red on the other. The deity in this temple is believed to have spotted in naturally formed cave. The continuous flow of water from the hillocks on this beautiful temple, gives an impression as if Goddess Ganga is bestowing her purity here. There is a huge tank near the temple. It is the northern gateway of Srisailam – one of the Jyotirlingas. It is atop the hill covered by huge trees.
The hill ranges shields the temple. Throughout the day hardly any sunlight falls on this stretch, thus maintaining temperature below normal round the year. It is popularly known as Poor Man’s Ooti. Papanasanam is around 200 m away from the sanctum sanctorum, where water comes out underneath the huge rocks all through the year.
