Kallur Overview

Ranked 2 of 16 sightseeing in Raichur

Kallur is a large village situated in Manvi Taluk, around 21 km from the city of Raichur. This village is surrounded by an old wall and five gates that appear to belong to the Muslim period. Three of the five gates are known by the names of the town that they lead to namely Kalmala Darwaza, Manvi Darwaza and Raichur Darwaza. The other two don’t have any names.

This village is also home to six temples amongst which, the Markandeshwara Temple is the most popular one. This temple is regarded as the oldest one and its structure comprises several black polished stone pillars having ancient carvings on them. At several other sites of this village, inscriptions belonging to the period of the Chalukyas of Kalyana are also seen.

    Beautiful deities in a house

    Mainly visitors who have vows, visit the village. The village is close by to Raichur. From the highway only few kilometres inside. Dirty village with narrow mud roads. Even our small car Maruti found it difficult to maneuver through the roads. One tractor on the road is enough to make you stop. The Mahalakshmi temple is very much inside the village in a small house. Few arrows are there to guide us to the temple. The purohith stays upstairs on the same house. When we called he came in and opened the temple. Later he told the stories of the deities. The Lakshmi looks very beautiful with cute features. The lord's statue was found while digging, it seems. People come to this temple to tie coconuts on the roof for fulfilling their wishes. It is nice to see many of the coconut bundles on the roof.
