From the 10th to 11th centuries, researchers discovered a large status of Lord Vishnu depicting the four Avatars. The statue was discovered in Rukmapur village, Chegunta Mandal, by Kolipaka Srinivas, a member of the Kotha Telangana Charitra Brundam (KTCB).

The Saptha Matrukas sculpture, Lord Anjaneya idol, Shivalinga, Nandi, Lord Vinayaka, Lord Surya, and other statues in the temple were also discovered, according to Srinivas.
Lord Vishnu’s sculpture, according to Sriramoju Haragopal, contains the four Avatars, Varaha-Kurma-Matsya-Buddha, sculpted in the Chalukya style. He went on to say that they had never seen a Lord Vishnu sculpture with four Avatars before. Vinayaka was sculpted in the Rashtrakuta style. The Telangana government has been urged to protect the rare sculptures by the KTCB.
