An outstanding example of art work

Ramappa Temple also known as the Ramalingeswara temple, is located 77 km from Warangal, which was the ancient capital of the Kakatiya dynasty, in Palampet village of Venkatapur Mandal, which was built in 1213 AD by a Chieftain Recherla Rudra, during the period of the Kakatiya ruler Ganapati Deva and the main Linga is placed on a raised platform in the main sanctum. It has got the name Ramappa on the name of the designer. This temple was completed in 40 years.It is a Lord Shiva Temple and chief deity is Ramalingeshwara which is the form of Lord Shiva and incarnation of Lord Vishnu and Lord Rama, Lord Ganesh and other Deities are significant. This temple is erected on an elevated star shaped platform and Ramappa art, plan and sculptor made an excellent example and very spectacular. Sophisticated carvings on walls, pillars and ceilings. Starting at its base to its wall panels, pillars and ceiling are sculpted figures drawn from Hindu mythology and each story is made alive by the artists. The sanctum's roof of the temple is built with moulded bricks, which are so light that they are able to float on water.The hall in front of the sanctum has four carved pillars, ceiling and a circular dance floor and Perini Shiva Thandavam is depicted on beams and ceiling which is significant by the poses of the dancers. Either side of the main temple two sanctums are situated. Main entrance of the sanctum has many images as welcome by images of ladies keeping in their hands Joined and Lord Krishna with playing flute and if that flute is strike by nail you hear the musical Notes. Nandi sitting outside the temple and one eye and ear on Lord Shiva. At this entrance highly fashionable Ragini's and Nagini's images are there made of black granite. Whole temple complex was built by black polished granite and rough light brown granite or sandstone. The design is such that during day main sanctum have the broad day light. Pradakshina is marked by elephant's row and all are carved specially depicting the feelings of devotees. Kakatiya's trade relations with Egypt were very strong as P heron is also have the place. A model Temple and inscriptions on a stone pillar are there in the complex as a large area of the temple was having greenery, main entrance ruins are visible. Mostly this temple was damaged in an earthquake during 17th-century. Though Nizam also contributed towards restoration, as rectangular pillars were added to support the main sanctum's structure. Now it is under the Archaeological Survey Of India and they are working to check the further damages and step towards restoration of this marvellous temple.It is an outstanding example of art work and on Maha Shivratri thousands of devotees are gathering in that celebration. Ramappa lake is nearby visitors may enjoy the Boating and also Ghanpur temple complex a great attraction for the tourists and art lovers. If services of Guides are taken by the visitors will be much helpful to understand the stories behind every art work.

Wonderful temple

This is one of the best temples, I have been to in Telangana. Not very crowded and you can spend 2 hrs there. We took service of a guide and he showed some interesting pieces of architecture like the Dashavataram, Churning of Amrit, a statue that has not been damaged and lots of other facts. The guide charged us 200 RS and it was worth it. Also stay at the resort by side of the lake. It is one of the biggest lake I have seen. The Haritha Resort was OK but found 2 ft sized Lizards in the room.Overall a nice getaway from Hyderabad or Warangal.

Hidden beauty of Warangal

Beautiful temple to visit. Marvelous sculptures and splendid architecture. In fact, we missed out a river near-by. :( Got to know the same once when we are back to Hyderabad. Anyways, we are planning to visit again.If you are planning to visit Ramappa Temple, then start early from Warangal. Club your trip with Malluru Narasimha Swami Temple as well. From there you could directly go to Bhadrachalam. Though it's a single lane road, there is not much traffic. Further, you will enjoy the drive through the banks of the River Godavari.

Excellent experience when I visited this temple

I went to Ramappa for enjoying with my friends at the age of 20. But when I saw the temple I can't believe that how Kakatiya's build the temple because the rock designs and pillars gives us an excellent thrill. Everyone must and should see this before we die.

Pleasant temple and worth visiting

The temple was pleasant and it was worth the visit, its history and the structures were very old, as I am a civil engineer I looked only at structures the making of them etc. The temple location is too long to travel from city.

Great architectural engineering

A great architectural engineering monument in Warangal. The temple is full of great sculptures of Kakatiya dynasty. It's 700 years old, around 78 kms away from Warangal, but buses,taxis are available to visit it. It required one day to visit, as nearby,they have Ramappa lake and Laknavaram lake, which one must see along with Ramappa temple.
