There are several oldest temples in Andhra Pradesh in which exist famous goddess temples like "Kanakadurga" at Vijayawada , "Bhadrakali" at Warrangal etc."

Sri Ujjaini Mahankali" temple in Telangana region at Secunderabad is 191 years old. Visited and prayers offered to the Goddess by unending large number of devotees everyday in general. In Ashada jathara thousands of devotees visit on the principal days (which falls on Sunday and Monday). There is no doubt about granting the wishes of devotees by the goddess and devotees fulfilling the vows. This temple is a symbol of devotion of Shri Suriti Appaiah garu resident of Secunderabad Shri Suriti Appaiah garu was working in the military in the year 1813.A.D. He was was sent to Ujjain as mason along with others army bearers. Everyday Shri Appaiah garu visited Mahankali goddess temple and prayed her with utmost devotion during the entire period of his stay at Ujjain. He became an ardent devotee of the powerful goddess at Ujjain. On one day he has prostrated at her feet and offered prayers expressing gratitude for success of their mission to Ujjain and for showing the way for return journey, also prayed in many respects and expressed his wish that her idol will be installed at Secunderabad for offering prayers for ever. All of them returned to Secunderabad from Ujjain after the goddess felt happy and blessed Shri Appaiah garu for his selfless devotion. She also bestowed kindness on him. In the month of July 1815, Shri Appaiah garu installed a idol made of wood at the place where the present temple is existing and conducting pujas. He built the walls around the idol and constructed a small temple named "Ujjain Mahankali" temple. It is said that in those olden days this place was inhabited by trees, insects, rocks and lakes. There was a big well and when repairs were being carried out by digging an idol named "Manikyalamma" was found. The same idol can be seen today in the sanctorum of the temple towards Ujjaini Mahankali's right side. In the year 1864 A.D Shri Appaiah garu replaced wooden idol and installed the two idols of "Mahankali" and "Mnikyalamma" as per the Hindu sastras and relevant pujas. Later, Shri Sanjivaiah the son of Shri Surirti Appaiah garu collected some amount in his village along with his friends got constructed the mandapam in the year 1900 A.D. Shri Laxmaiah (mesthri and representing army bearer) son of Shri Sanjivaiah collected some amount and constructed few shops along side the temple entrance as a source of income. In the year 1914 A.D Shri Kistaiah son of Shri Laxmaiah formed a committee to conduct daily pujas and archanas by appointing a brahman (Shri Ogirala Subbaiah garu). Sons of Shri Kistaiah and Chikoti Chandraiah garu, prominent vysyas and their family members continued their efforts for the development of Shri Ujjaini Mahankali temple. In the year 1947 A.D the endowment department of the then state government constituted a committee and arranged a Brahman, Shri Yendapalli Venkataramaiah for the purpose of conducting rituals to the goddess.

The temple is close to 200 years old and well maintained, Can move in and move out easily having a good darshan of Kali. There is plenty of place to sit around and pray. They offer good prasad from 10rupees.
It is in the heart of the city and Car Parking is a big challenge as there is none and you will need to find some vacant spot somewhere to park. has 2 wheeler parking.

This temple is very famous and a must visit. The Pooja's done here are very good and the maintenance of the temple is very good.
The security arrangements are good.
People are allowed to have good darshan of temple goddess. Only during peak pooja seasons the line of devotees increases so it takes longer time to reach the sanctum santorum.
Regards,
Sujatha Shankaran

Visited this temple on friday in ashada month with my family and was very crowded. Had a wonderful darshan of kali ammavaru and felt very happy. Bonalu is the main festival celebrated here, people from all over telangana come here for bonalu jathara to offer naivedyam (rice, curd, spinach, neem leaves, turmeric, kumkum) and receive blessings of the goddess.

Every friday vadi biyyam (turmeric rice) is offered to ammavaru and everyday kumkuma archana & pushpa puja is performed here. All the wishes are fulfilled if you have great faith.

A must visit temple in Secunderabad.
