The Thousand Pillars Temple is a fine specimen of Kakatiya architecture built in the 12th century by Kakatiya ruler Rudradeva in 1163 AD. It is one of the finest architecture of Indian deities and culture. The Black stone used is of very high quality and the sculptures and carvings are very precise and rare.

The temple itself was a true marvel. The architecture was exquisite, showcasing intricate designs and craftsmanship. We were in awe of the spiritual aura that enveloped the premises, creating a serene and peaceful ambiance. The beauty of the temple truly left a lasting impression on all of us.

A very old and one of the most famous temples in Warangal. You can see great architecture all over. Parking is congested so visit during non-busy hours.

Rudraeshwara Temple is a beautiful temple with a long history and magnificent architecture. Part of it was under renovation. It is also a functioning temple and the premises have been kept clean. It is very close to the railway station (approx. 5 km.) The whole area can be covered under 30 minutes. A temple pond is attached to the premises.

Read too glorious reviewers but it's not worth all that. Compare it with old temples like Halebidu- Balur in Karnataka or Mahabalipuram this was quite average. A lot of it is under renovation apparently for eternity. Plus no measures whatsoever by Govt or temple trust even in times of Covid. Not worth all the hype. Better avoid.

Thousand pillar temple or Rudreshwara temple is a beautiful temple built by the Kakatiyas. It has some repair work being done by ASI right now. The carving around the door of Rudreshwara is exquisite.

I visited Warangal on sankranti day and the crowds were quite in control in this very popular temple around 10.30 am. No entry tickets and specific camera changes unless you want to do videography. The black soapstone is good but could be maintained better. Not sure if exposure to light and so much human touch is helpful to this stone
