Surendrapuri is a museum located about 60km from Hyderabad, India. The museum is also known as Mythological Awareness Center. As the name indicates, it was established to create an awareness of Indian mythology, or more specifically Hindu mythology. It was established by Kunda Satyanarayana in memory of his son Surendra. It is also known locally as Kunda Satyanarayana Kala Dhamam, in his honor. Meaning that Kunda Satyanarayana has used artistry extensively to depict mythology.It contains nearly full sized replicas of almost all the important Hindu temples in India. The architecture of the temple and the sculptures inside makes one feel as if one is in the actual holy place itself. There are a few hundred such replicas. The sculptures are displayed in open air indoors, depending on the size of the replica and the mythological scene portrayed.There are sculptures and paintings depicting stories from major Hindu epics like Ramayan, Mahabharat, and Bhagavat. Various mythological scenes of war between Rama and Ravana in Ramayana, including Padmavyuha in Kurukshetra between Kauravas and Pandavas in Mahabharat, are carved beautifully and portrayed in great detail.For the religious minded, it provides satisfaction of having visited all the Hindu holy places in India in one short trip of about 3-4 hours. For the curious minded, it provides a good visual background of what Hindu mythology is all about. One does not have to be religious to visit this place.Plan to see Surendrapuri and other attractions that appeal to you using our Hyderabad tour planner.
