Golden history of this great city

Nagunur Fort, previously it was known as Nagaroor, which remain alive with the emergence of Kakatiyas after the reign of Vemulawada Chalukyas, Kalyani Chalukyas for five centuries from 8th-13th centuries and its people as a centre of faith, a religious centre, a political centre, a spiritual centre also as a capital of morality, reaches to its extinction. This great capital turned to ruin which was having about 400 temples and now only three are visible, among these three two are already in ruins and one is about to be ruined, which is situated about 8 km from Karimnagar opposite to the Prathima Institute Of Medical Sciences and close to the Karimnagar Railway Station.One Lord Shiva's temple close to the highway is under restoration by Archaeological Survey Of India and a yard housing the ancient stone sculptors might be the ruined structure's segments, but no significant informations are provided at the site for visitors by the Archaeological Department about the fort and the Shivalaya. About two kilometre by an exit road leads to the Village Nagunur, majority of the peoples were unknown about the existence of the Fort. I found a grand temple facing to the North built on a raised platform with three sanctums all are dedicated to Lord Shiva, hall with carved, sculpted and decorated beams, pillars, ceiling, door frames, dance floor, depiction of images of musicians, dancers with Mridangam an essential instrument accompanied in Carnatic music also known as the King Of Percussion and considered as a Divine Instrument. Ignorance of the evidences of a glorious past of this capital, brought in a very bad condition, it won't be able to bear a rainy season and another just opposite to this temple which is almost damaged, East facing with pillars, dance floor and a sanctum and ceiling and few ramparts. Archaeological Department has marked all the stone structure but here also no prehistoric or historic informations are provided.Golden history of this great city, can be estimated by looking at these chronic residues. Visit of Varalakshmi will be worth for visitors to have an exclusive shopping experience.
