The temple is located in a village and great location. There are many visitors taking rounds around the temple if their wishes are fulfilled. Safe to travel.No commercial attitude of Temple management. No hundi. No Special Darshan.

Interesting temple on the outskirts of Hyderabad.Popular with those applying for visa to visit abroad , it is run by a dedicated family of priests who have zealously protected its autonomy. Amenities for the devotees could be upgraded.
