Ishta Kameswari is a temple of Goddess Parvathi present in the Srisailam forest, towards the south of Mallikarjuna swamy main temple. She is also called as Istha kamakshi.

How to reach Ishta kameswari temple ?

As it is present in the deep forest previously only Sadhus (who are interested in meditation) visited this temple. There is no Road way to it. But, now with the help of Zeeps people are going to this holy place. The journry is very hard. The temple is very small and now we can see it only in the ruined state. But, remembering the blessings of the godess, Devotees who visit this temple are gradually increasing.

The idol of Ishta kameswari looks very beautiful with two lotus flowers, a Shiva linga and Japamala in her hands.
