  • It is also a place is one of the biggest attractions of warangal, hanamconda tourism, and was looking forward to most places, but to actually visit the most disappointed. Only 12th-century temple was badly damaged, you'll find a repair is required, but that was too bad. Timber is being installed in the entire Temple, scattered timber to the environment, has been neglected, reached the roof of the Nandi statue is nickeled green vinyl seats, was a tragic state. You can see the beautiful?

  • Before going to temple am read some comments on tat also very nice. Waiting to see 1000 pillar rudreshwara swamy vishnu and suryan.
  • Located in a Serene Place, the Temple has three deities viz; Shiva Narayana and Surya this was Built by Kakatiya king Rudra Pratap 2 during 1163 CE and is a stone cut Temple. Main Deity is Lord Shiva. Last visited: 15 Sep 2007
  • This temple is carved from a rock even the roof and slab were purely rock material which gives a cool and spiritual feel from the moment you step into the temple.This temple has 1000 pillars but none of them were obstruction to see god.Modern engineers have removed all the pillars and the wet sand below Its level.This wetness of sand is because of pipe connection between badrakali lake to 1000 pillar temple
  • Built earlier to Ramappa temple....typical kakatiya architecture...basing on 1000 pillars ..temple of shiva vishnu and surya...
  • Great Temple constructed during kakitiya dynasty, Although it's named thousand pillar but when you count will find more than thousand pillars..
