The village of Mukteswaram,only a kilometre from the Vinayaka shrine in Ainavilli, is the site of the ancient Sri Mukteswaram Shiva temple. Like in most other temple towns of Konaseema, the Godavari flows not far from here, while the Gautami is much nearer.
The temple is part of puranic-lore. The Lingam, it is said, was installed by Lord Rama. Those who pray at this temple are said to be assured of mukti; hence the name "Mukteswaram".
