There are hundreds of Temples in and around the Twin Cities of Secunderabad and Hyderabad. I have recently read that there are over 700 Temples of Sri Anjaneya Swamy alone in the City. Some of them are centuries old and some of recent origin - especially those that have come up in new colonies of the ever-growing City. Among the new temples, the most beautiful ones have also become tourist spots like the Birla Mandir on Naubhat Pahad in the heart of the city, the Sanghi Temple Complex and Ratnalayam Temple in the outskirts of the city.
Today I am writing about the Sanghi Temple Complex that has come up in 1992. It is so beautiful that a large number of Telugu movies have scenes of this Temple. The Temple Complex has also become a big tourist attraction.
The Sanghi Temple Complex is located 30 Kms. from our house along National Highway No. 9 beyond Dilshuknagar, in Sanghi Nagar. The Temple Complex is constructed and maintained by the Sanghi family, a family of prominent businessmen and industrialists. The Temple is constructed on a hillock called Paramanand Giri. The Temple construction was carried out by and under the supervision of an internationally acclaimed sculptor Padmashri awardee, Sri Ganapathy Sthapathy. It is built in the style of South Indian Temple architecture taking into consideration all the religious rules. The presiding deity of the Temple Complex is Sri Venkateshwara Swamy. The imposing and beautiful idol of Sri Venkateshwara Swamy is 9-1/2 feet tall. Other Temples in the complex are also equally beautiful. The other Temples are of Padmavathy Devi, Lord Shiva and Parvati, Ashta Lakshmi, Lord Sri Rama, Sri Vijaya Ganapathi, Lord Kartikeya, Sri Durga Devi, Sri Anjaneya Swamy and the Temple of Navagraha deities. There is a Kalyana Mandapam in the Temple Compex and a Goshala with over 400 cattle. And there is also a beautiful garden called Pavitra Vanam, here. The tall and beautiful Raja Gopuram can be seen from several kilometers away. Every inch of this Temple Complex is beautiful as you may notice in the above photographs.
It is a place the residents and visitors of Hyderabad would admire and love to visit frequently for enjoying the beautiful atmosphere, offering prayers and seek divine blessings.
