  • Very famous temple in Hyderabad, many devotees will come here to pray the goddess from different places.I heard this goddess is very powerful from many mouths. Temple was good but the only thing is not having enough place for cooking BONALU , people faces very difficulties who are coming with their families and wants to cook the food in the surroundings. I hope government should bring more facilities for the people in future, as soon as possible.
