The Ramappa Temple at Palampet near Warangal may become the first UNESCO heritage site in Telangana, under the name, The Glorious Kakatiya Temples and Gateways.

Key Facts:

  • Ramappa Temple also known as the Ramalingeswara temple, is located 77 km from Warangal, the ancient capital of the Kakatiya dynasty, 157 km from Hyderabad in the state of Telangana in southern India.
  • It was built by the patronage of the Kakatiya ruler Kakati Ganapathi Deva under the authority of his Chief Commander Rudra Samani.
  • The main structure is called Rudrasheswara temple, after King Rudra Deva and it is also known Ramalingeswara Temple.
  • All Kakatiya temples were built in groups of three – the Trikuta style. But many books refer to this temple as Eka Kuta or ‘single shrine’, which is atypical of the Kakatiya style.
