The Bhuyaran Pochamma cave temple of the Kolam tribes is surrounded by wilderness in a remote location on the banks of the Kumaram Bheem reservoir. It is quite easy to walk past the region, without realising there could a temple situated somewhere in the middle.
The shrines of the tribe are remote because in the past, they were persecuted. These forest dwelling tribes are agile and climb the rocky hillocks with great ease – and use their skill in traversing the region to their advantage. Like the aboriginal Gonds, the Kolam tribe also worships horse and cattle, and these figures are made of terracota.
