I reached the temple around 12 noon on a hot Monday during summer and was taken by surprise to see the rush. The devotees have to leave behind their mobile phones and cameras, any other belongings if you wish, in the locker before entering the temple. You have to deposit a small fee, as less as Rs 5 or Rs... More

It is different than the other temples in India, even though there is too much of crowd, the authorities have succeeded in keeping this temple clean. There is no money collection at all. Must visit !!!

This Lord Vishnu temple is a place to visit for any Hindu visiting the city of Hyderabad. The number of people visiting the temple would make ignore the fact that it is remotely located. The temple priest promotes chanting (Hymn) the name of the Lord by everyone entering the temple. People do 11 revolutions chanting the name of the lord... More
