Kolanupaka came into prominence when it was
made the alternate capital of the Kalyani Chalukyas in the 11th century
AD. The State Department of Archaeology and Museums established a
sculptural gallery, which exhibits artefacts from the various historical
monuments in Kolanupaka. Artefacts from both the Chalukyan and Kakatiyan
styles are displayed in the museum. The museum has more than 100 images
collected around Kolanupaka. The museum specialises in temple architecture
of the Someswara temple complex.
This museum is of great help to the research scholars who are researching on sculpture and calligraphy of both Chalukyan and Kakatiyan periods.
