visited at 12 noon and it was hot as hell. Ran to the top on 300 stairs carrying the kids. I probably would have had a better time after sunset.

I have been to this place with my family. Architecture wise its one of best temples that you find in Hyderabad. I think it took around 10 years for constructing this temple by Birla foundation.
