Located around 35 kilometre on the outskirts of Hyderabad, Keesaragutta is a village that is popular for the Keesaragutta Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Legends say that after Lord Ram defeated Ravana, he came at this spot to wash away his sins for killing a Shiva devotee. Lord Ram sent Hanuman to get the shivalingam idol from Vanarasi. Hanuman however, was late for the auspicious hour. To keep up with the auspicious time, Lord Shiva appeared to Lord Ram and gave him an idol to pray to. Meanwhile Hanuman retuned to see that his 100 idols would not be installed in the temple and hence scattered the idols all over the premises. Even today, you can see shivalingams in random spots spread around the area.

The temple is visited by devotes throughout the year but the energy of the place during Shivratri, is simply palpable!

Keesaragutta Temple, Hyderabad Reviews - Write a Review

  • This used to be a very clean and serene place. The temple complex has been changed drastically in the past decade from what it used to be earlier. There are a lot of fences and barricades all around completely restricting the movement of the pilgrims and looking like a cage. Considering that the crowd is present only on very few days in an year, these permanent barricades are not required. The whole temple needs renovation. People are dumping plastic bags and bottles all around. The hills and the lake provide spectacular views.

  • Historical and peaceful temple located on a hill. Very calm and serene. Fully motorable to the top. Toll is Rs.30 for 4 wheelers. Beware of lots of monkeys who will snatch any belongings. Temple is usually open from 5.30AM to 12.30PM and 3PM to 7.30PM

  • Wonderful place to go, one can carry and have food besides the road towards temple. Better to take only paper plates instead plastic disposables.

  • Enjoyed a lot with vedic scholars near temple. They are really cute and practising the spells. Good location for photos

  • Have been there many times. The temple premises changed alot. Vedic school providing and practising the cultural values of sanathana dharma. Annadaana satram provides food for all devotees, very neatly maintained. You wouldn't find much rush during the weekdays and moderate in weekends. The views takes you to a different world of nature's beauty. If you have a plan for half or one days outing, you can consider it in your list.
