Uttameshwara temple in Koppa is a Shiva temple. As it mentioned in Sthala Purana, this is one of the temples in the area consecrated by Sage Agasthya in the Dwapara Yuga. This temple has idols of Shiva, Durga, and Ganesha.
This temple is believed to be the one where Rukmini worshipped Durga before she was supposed to proceed to the marriage hall to wed Sishupala. But she thought otherwise and it was from here, it is said, that Krishna came to her rescue and she eloped with him.
