Set on a hill-top between Hanamkonda and Warangal,
The Bhadrakali temple is noted for its stone
image of the Goddess Kali, here shown in a sitting
posture. She is depicted with eight arms and
carries a weapon in each hand.
Another important monument
in Warangal is the fort built by the Kakatiyas.
It has four decorative gateways of remarkable
beauty. The outer walls are built of mud bricks,
and the inside is fortified by stonewalls in
which many carved stones are found. These carved
stoned are believed to have been taken out of
the destroyed Chalukyan temples.
Rightfully described as the
"brightest star in the galaxy of medieval
temples in the Deccan," a visit to Ramappa
temple at Palampet will be simply breathtaking.
Rich, intricate carvings, each telling a story
of its own, adorn the walls, pillars and ceilings
of this marvellous edifice.
Warangal is not the sort of
place you would ordinarily take time out for
but it is certainly a place that you would not
like to miss.
