The Wargal Saraswati Temple is one among the few temples of goddess Saraswati in Telangana. Also known as Sri Vidya Saraswati Temple, it was built by Sri Yamavaram Chandrashekhara Sharma. The temple foundation stone was laid in 1989. On 1992 Sri Vidya Nrusinha Bharati Swamy has laid the foundation to the statues of Goddess Sri Vidya Saraswathi Devi and Lord Shani. Now it is maintained by Kanchi Mutt.
The Wargal Temple is dedicated to Goddess Saraswati Devi. The garbhagriha is located at a level nearly equivalent to the third floor. The Goddess is seen to be in full glory decorated with a lot of jewels and garlands and adorned in a saree. There is an idol of Goddess about 10 feet high in front of the temple, which is a magnificent piece of art.
The other temples in the complex are Sri Lakshmi Ganapathi, Lord Shanishwara and Lord Shiva. There are two Vaishnava Temples here, which are almost in ruins as of now. These two Vaishnava Temples are said to have been built during the reign of the Kakatiya rulers. A huge victory pillar is also located nearby. With a height of about 30 feet, it has statues of Lord Rama, Goddess Sita, Lord Lakshmana and Goddesses Lakshmi over it. The temple has a Veda Paathashaala on its premises where many students learn Vedas.
Many families visit this temple for their children's Aksharaabyasam before they join school for the first time. Meals are provided for free for all the devotees at the temple premises called as Nitya Annadanam.
Vasantha Panchami, Navartri Mahaotsavams and Shani Tryodasi festivals are being celebrated in a grand manner in this temple. Moola Nakshatram (Birth star of Goddess Saraswati) is the most auspicious day for worshiping Saraswati Devi. During this day special rituals are performed at the temple.
Thousands of families attend the Aksharabhyasa along with their children on Vasantha Panchami (Jan/Feb) which attracts around 25-30 thousand devotees. Darshan usually takes 2-3 hours during Vasantha Panchami and Aksharabhyasa might take at least an hour extra.
