Simple, calm, serene. Place built beautifully midst small villages and fields the elephant's built on either sides of the entrance are kids favourites.
The Temple gives out serene and devotional vibes.

“Wow!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A must go temple, over 2000 years old, this great temple is just about 80 kms from Hyderabad city. You can go by a hired car for about Rs. 2600 (indica - AC - 4 pax) or by AC train from Hyderabad to Aler station - rickshaw.. The temple also has staying facilities with aircon rooms at a very subsidized rate. One must go there and stay atleast a night so that the morning can be spent in the temple. The temple idols are thousands of years old with a very mystic past. There is one idol made of sapphire. Next to the temple is cow shed, where about 200 cows are kept and taken care off - you can go and feed them with fodder with your own hands. No entry fee and everything is very cheap, leave early morning from Hyderabad to enjoy it in a cooler climate.

“2000 yr old Jade Mahavir Statue”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

I visited this temple twice.
I was told that the Jade Mahavir statue here is 2000yr old !
The temple has been renovated in the recent past.
This place is approachable by road from Aler, a place between Hyderabad and Warangal.
Photography was allowed when I first visited and it was denied during my recent visit.
Kolanupauk also has similar aged Shiva temple of Renukacharya, a disciple of Basaveswara.
There is an Archaeological museum near the Shiva temple hosting lot of sculptures and "Shila sasanas" written in Kannada.
