Reused sculpture
A temple ceiling fragment is re-used in a window block on one of the Islamic buildings on Orugallu (a rock hill at the centre of the fort). This triangular piece, obscured by paint but quite well preserved, is either Siva Nataraja or Mahisamardhini. It is an intricate composition filled with several figures. A panel at the edge of the composition has a procession of yalis above elephants. Other structures on Orugallu include a simple Kakatiya temple with an open mandapa and porch. More sculpture fragments are displayed in front of the temple.
