  • Popular shaivite temple in Telangana state. Devasthanam Guest house is having rooms for accommodation. But rooms have to be developed with facilities. Anyhow, special cottages are more convenient and facilitative. One have to enquire the special cottages providing to VIPs are available or not in advance. Temple is more precious and one should visit in the lifetime.
  • Visiting on Mondays very difficulty because of more public, good accommodation, transport is poor in Monday rest of the days good
