Located about 40 kms from Hyderabad, Keesaragutta is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Siva and his consorts Bhavani and Sivadurga. This temple is a must visit for Lord Shiva worshipers.

The temple is beautiful and the legend behind it enhances its beauty. The legend says that Sri Rama installed the Siva lingam here to atone for the sin of killing Ravana, a Brahman. This culture- rich temple is situated in a scenic location surrounded by hills and verdant greenery. This place is also very rich in history and it dates back to the 4th-5th century since twelve idols of Jain Tirthankara were found near the temple steps at a depth of one foot which proves that Jainism co-existed along with Hinduism at Keesaragutta.

While visiting the Keesaragutta temple, one thing needs to be kept in mind- it is very crowded during weekends. You will enjoy a visit to this place the most while in solitude- which will lead you to truly finding peace.
Look all around you- all you witness is the noise and pollution of the city. How nice it would feel to get some peace of mind, even if for a little while on a getaway! If such thoughts ever cross your mind, you need to visit the Keesaragutta Temple.
