  • We had unplanned visit to this place on our trip to యాదగిరి గుట్ట. I was very excited to visit this site. After watching it, i felt it was a bit overrated. But temple is very nice and surroundings are clean. It could have been maintained better. Please do not miss going to భద్రకాలి అమ్మవారి temple.
  • Famous temple which was listed in world heritage monuments is not well maintained. 1000 pillars are no more existing and govt is reconstructing the monument. There is temple inside the monument. Not worth visiting place.
  • State of the art architecture. Just wondered how beautifully carved stones were in the temple. Enjoyed being there. In the background image you can see Nandi too. India has a rich history which need to be percolated down to the citizens.
  • Historical temple conveniently located on the main road with proper paid parking. Part of it still under renovation. Worth visiting only when you are around that area otherwise worth giving a miss. No convenience / rest rooms facility around.
  • Great architecture... Now some of that were not proper but still we can look beauty and feel peacefulness over the place. A must visit for Indians and architecture lovers...
