The Parasurameswara Swamy Temple of Gudimallam is located in a tiny village close to Tirupati in the Yerpedu mandal of the Tirupati district of Andhra Pradesh, India. It is home to an ancient lingam known as the Gudimallam Lingam which is 13 kilometers to the southeast of Tirupati City
Despite being a small village, Gudimallam is well recognised for its extremely early linga, which has an obvious phallic shape and a full-length Shiva standing relief figure on the front. This is in the Shiva-dedicated Hindu temple’s garbhagriha, the Parasurameswara Temple. This is possibly the second-oldest Shiva linga that has been found so far and it has been dated to the second or first century BC, the third century BC,or much later, to the second century AD, the third or fourth century AD,or even, according to one source, as late as the seventh century AD.

The main temple is known for having the earliest sivalinga still in existence in India, which dates to the second or third century B. C. It has an apsidal shrine in the lower level, an Ardha Mandapam and a mahamandapam in front, all of which face east and are each higher than the one before it. However, the main entry to the shrine is on the south side of the Maha Mandala, where a decorative porch with pillars has been erected to the walled enclosure (dwarapala). The main shrine is surrounded on all sides by a peristyle cloister. The brick Vimana atop the shrine is hollow inside and apsidal in plan, giving it the name “lingakruti Vimana” because of its elevation that resembles a linga nut.
The mysteriousness of this sculpture, in the words of Harle, “lies in the total absence so far of any object in an even remotely similar manner within many hundreds of miles, and indeed anywhere in South India,” as it is “the only sculpture of any importance” to have survived from ancient South India before sculpture made under the Pallava dynasty from the 7th century AD. The figure on the linga is “one of the earliest surviving and unmistakable depictions of the god Shiva,” if it is given an early date.
