Kunda Satyanarayana Kala Dhamam - Surendrapuri
Surendrapuri- locally known as "Kunda Satyanarayana Kaladhamam" is situated near the famous Temple of Yadadri( Yadagirigutta), Yadadri- Bhuvanagiri district, Telangana, India. It is a mythological theme park, first of its kind in India. There are about 110 replicas of various temples located all over the country. Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Bhagavatha are depicted in the form of Idols in this Kaladhamam( Museum). Tourists come to this mythological awareness center from all over India.One can reach this place from Hyderabad and Warangal. On my way from Hyderabad, it took just 50 minutes on the Hyderabad- Warangal Highway. The journey on the state highway was adventurous and took us away from the urban life. Once we cross Bhuvanagiri, which is the district headquarters, there is a left turn towards Yadadri, the abode of Lord Sri Laxmi Narsimha Swamy. On the way to Yadadri, to our right hand side, we observes a statue which is about 65 feet inviting us into the Surendrapuri temple complex. It is a double sided Hanuman- Shiva statue with Five faces. As we move further, a beautiful entrance with Godess Gayatri Maa, the mother of vedas. We took the entry ticket which may seem too expensive but believe me after coming out of this museum, one can really think that they have paid too less than the worth of it. We enter inside the kaladhamam through the archway of elephant tusks and the mouth of the Lion. After the security check, one enters into the world of Mythological wonders which would leave this world far away at the entrance.
