About Bhadrakali Temple
Bhadrakali Temple is the oldest temple situated on the hilltop between the two cities of Hanumakonda and Warangal, and is one of the oldest temples of Goddesses Bhadrakali. The inscriptions of the temple wall describes the victory of the King Pulakesin2 of Chalukya Dynasty over the Vengi region of Andhra Desam which was believed to be built in 625 A.D.
Later, this temple was adopted by Kakatiya kings who considered Goddess Bhadrakali as their “Kula Devatha”. A lake was also built by Ganapati deva adjacent to the temple. This temple lost its prominence due to the fall of Kakatiya Dynasty to the Muslim rulers of Delhi.
Architecture of the Bhadrakali Temple – The exceptional feature of the temple is the 2.7*2.7m2 stone image of Goddess Bhadrakali with fierce looking eyes, and eight arms each carrying a weapon. Goddess Bhadrakali’s vahana-Lion is placed opposite the sanctum sanctorum. Temple also has a Dwajasthambam and a Balipeetam.
