The Ramalingeswara or the Ramappa Temple in Palampet village, is a marvel that will give your soul peace and your heart a feeling of spirituality. This temple has a really positive vibe. No matter how scorching the heat outside is, the moment you step in, it feels like you entered an air conditioned cave. The Shiv Linga here is impressive enough to keep your eyes staring at it for quiet long. The temple is believed to have been built in the 11th century and it took 40 years to carve this marvelous sculpture and Ramappa is beleived to be the sculptor, after whom the temple is named.
In close proximity to the Ramappa Temple is the lovely Ramappa Lake. It's a great spot for photography enthusiasts. You can spend time boating, when the sun isn't high. If you explore a bit, you will find a picturesque location here with a single tree standing at the extreme edge of the lake. You can take your car right there provided you are good with driving and cautious with the muddy terrain.
