The Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple in Yadadri is praised for its architectural beauty


Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today inaugurated the renovated temple of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy in Yadadri. Together with his cabinet and family members, he participated in a special ‘puja’ at the temple.

“Attend and pray at Maha Samprokshana Yagam in #Yadadri. CM KCR Garu has opened the door for a breathtaking spiritual journey and pilgrimage. #Yadadri will be a landmark of spiritual travel and architectural work around the World,” commanded TRS MLC K Kavitha, son KCR women, tweeted.


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend the inauguration. But the plan was delayed due to the growing political distance between PM Modi and KCR.

The temple, located 65 km from the capital Hyderabad, has been renovated using black granite. More than 4,000 sculptors are working on the project which cost over Rs 1,800 crore.

“Cement only lasts 80-100 years. But we did some research and found that this (black granite) will last about 500 years,” Kishan Rao, vice chairman of the Yadadri Temple Development Authority told NDTV.


The temple is praised for its architectural beauty. It is a combination of Dravidian, Pallava, Kakatiyan styles of temple construction.

“The temple land area has been increased from 11 acres to 17 acres. This is the largest temple in the world that has been built entirely of stone,” Anand Sai, the temple’s chief architect told PTI.


With crowds already lining up, Yadadri is expected to put Telangana on the global spiritual tourism map.
