WARANGAL - THE THOUSAND PILLARED AALAYAM

This famous Aalaya has carved out an unenviable place in the Aalaya history of Bharat, and is one of the nine famous Aalayas of Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh. It is in the heart of town. This is an integral part of the most reputed Thousand pillared Aalaya built by the renowned Kakati Rudra Deva in 1184 A.D. It is built in the shape of star - a superb architectural feat. The artistry of the sculptors is of high order, and won the applause of many world renowned art - critics. The Aalaya is dedicated to three deities - Siva, Brahma and Surya, and each has a separate splendid shrine, but now in ruins., Yet, the Sivaalayam alone is standing unaffected by the ravages of time. Regular worship is carried on and it is the most visit-worthy Sivaalaya throbbing with Siva mahima of the town.

It lies in the town of Warangal, the district head quarters town of the same name in Andhra Pradesh, commanding rail and road facilities.
