The Nallamalai abound in sacred spots which coupled to their natural beauty have been attracting one and all from ascetic to common since ages. One such sacred spot which was also mentioned in the Skanda Purana is Mallika Theertham locally known as Mallela Theertham. This spot is located about 54 km from Srisailam. It is accessible by taking a diversion at Vatvarla Palli, a small village on Srisailam – Hyderabad highway and a travel of 10 km into the interior forest and has to trek to a distance of above 2 km at the end of the vehicular journey. Tradition ascribes that Chandravathi who offered jasmine garlands to God Siva at Srisailam also worshipped the Sivalinga of this place, which is known as Malleswara Lingam.
