The Bhadrakali Temple is an 8th century Temple which was built by the Kakatiya dynasty. It is situated on a holy mount in between the Hanamkonda and the Warangal city. The Temple is dedicated to Goddess Kali who is adorned with eight weapons in her eight arms. The deity is in a sitting posture with a crown on her head. The idol of the deity is 2.7m x 2.7m and is square shaped. The architectural style of the Chalukya’s can be clearly seen here. An artificial lake of 2.5 kms radius is located in the vicinity of the Temple along with natural rock formations which are believed to have immense spiritual powers.
Though the deity is called Bhadrakali, the Goddess is believed to have been transformed by mantras into a rare form called the Tripura Sundari which is regarded as the supreme manifestation of Prakriti (feminine power).
The best time to visit the Temple is during August – September when the deity is decorated in various forms. The nearby attractions include the Hanamkonda Fort and the Hanamkonda Temple.
