Kondajji is noted for temple of Chennakeshava (Allalanatha). There is an extraordinary image enshrined in a very ordinary granite temple. The image is about 18ft tall, made out of black stone. This most exquisite deity bearing the beautiful conch (Sankha), the Cakra, the Gade (the mace) and the Lotus, has been taken as Varadaraja Swamy by most of the people. Allala Natha is another favourite name given to this Lord by the localities. The decorative features found on the beautiful form of the Lord, the inexplicably delicate nicety of the sculptural work and the uniquely exquisite facial expression - every one of these aspects captivate the mind and heart of the spectator. Both to the sanctuary and on to the loft built for the sake of Pooja and Abhisheka, visitors have unrestricted access and this is a speciality of only this place. The back and the backside of this varadaraja murthy are highly attractive in all aspects including sculptural ornamentations.
Devotees visit this temple to seek fulfillment of the following:-
- Freedom from diseases
- Relief from adverse effects from bad planetary aspects
- Relief from bondage
