About Keesaragutta Temple, Hyderabad
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
Excellent place with great devotional atmosphere. Only thing that heartens to see is losing its originality. Expect a huge rush on holidays and special days. It's a huge place where you can drive up to the temple on the hill. Overall a beautiful place to be spent with family.
Very disappointed with the maintenance of such a great and historic temple. I see the endowment department are least bothered about cleanliness of the temple premises. And the prices of sevas are exaggerated when compared to other major temples - the department won't have answer for this. Such a historical temple where people come for blessings and peace of mind, but the authorities don't seem to bother. I request the situation be corrected the earliest, Thank you
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.
Thanks to TS Officers.. Maintained good for shivarathri.. lot of money spent on development of the area.. entry ticket prices are too high 200, 300, 500.. Maintained traffic well..
It's has very famous Lord Shiva temple on the hill.vry beautifully greenery. Looks Hyderabad city very beautiful from top.
