Forts and Temples
Sai Baba Temple
The Sai Baba temple was built by Shri Paskanti Balayya and was opened on 13 February 1992.
The Shiva temple was built by the Kakatiya kings. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is built in the Kakatiyan style of architecture. The temple stands on a three-foot platform with a beautifully carved Nandi (the bull serves as a mount (Sanskrit: Vahana) of Lord Shiva) outside the temple in an open area. Unlike other temples, there is no flag mast in front of it because it doesn't have a gopuram (temple tower).
Very recently, the stone temple was completely disassembled and restored. The temple has a large shiva lingam, considered an embodiment of Lord Shiva, with its guarding presence by the Nandi (Bull). The lingam was carved from a single stone. The temple is elevated from ground level by many rock beds beneath it. The temple roof stands on eighteen carved stone pillars.
The Domakonda Fort stands as a magnificent example of the defensive architecture of its period. The fort was constructed 400 years ago by Kamineni Vamsam. It blends Muslim and Hindu architecture. The arched gateway of the entrance is a great example of the Asaf Jaahi style of architecture. The fort has a number of tall, round, and square fortresses running all over its compound walls. There are two palaces and a temple complex inside the fort.
