Amidst the varied Islamic architectural monuments in Hyderabad, this temple has a different style – a touch of the south-Indian architecture.
In India, among the Hindu pantheon, the Goddess of wealth, Lakshmi, finds a special place in the hearts of the people for she brings prosperity and happiness as well as salvation. But very few temples have Goddess Lakshmi in all her eight splenderous forms.


Built under the auspices of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, the temple was consecrated in April 1996, and is one of its kind in the state of Andhra Pradesh. This temple is located between Dilsukh nagar and LB nagar, alkapuri near kothapet(NH 9).


The design and architecture of the Ashtalakshmi temple was borrowed from the one at Chennai (new name for Madras). However, several modifications were made while the construction was initiated. The Ashtalakshmi temple is a fine example of a collective endeavor. People from various quarters came forward to donate liberally. It took five years of non-stop work and a total expenditure of Rs 10 million for the magnificent Ashtalakshmi temple to take its present form.

The well-known architect,Padmashri S.M.Ganapati Sthapathi,and M.Mathiyalagan sthapathi conceived the structure and design of the temple. The idols of Ashtalakshmi, Sriman Narayana, Sri Ganapathi and Sri Garuda were designed by . About 134 vigrahams (idols) of lesser – known gods adorn the mahagopuram.

Although built of sand and cement, the Ashtalakshmi temple reveals the remarkable dexterity of the artists. Installed inside the temples are idols of Adilakshmi, Aishwaryalakshmi, Santanalakshmi, Dhanalakshmi, Dhanyalakshmi, Gajalakshmi, Vijayalakshmi and Varalakshmi. Depicting these eight postures, the idols are adorned with gold and – kasula peru necklace and other necklaces. If one is all praise for the richly ornamented idols inside the temple, one is equally agog to see the intricately carved designs on the temple gopuram.
Proposals are in the offing to construct a two-storeyed Kalyana Mandapam at a cost of Rs 15 million and an Archaka nilayam- residential quarters for the priests.

The nightly illumination of this enchanting temple is spectacular. Viewed from a distance, the temple looks like one made from marble. And on approaching the temple entrance, one is captivated by the tranquility of the surroundings and the all pervading sweet fragrance of the incense.

Best time to visit: The best time to visit the Ashtalakshmi temple is during the festival of Varalakshmi and during the festival of Diwali- the festival of Lights.

From the style, structure and appearance, it can be inferred that the temple was built half a millennium ago. Set in sylvan surroundings, the temple attracts thousands of pilgrims every year and is an ideal place for sequestered retreat and meditation. It enjoyed in the past, great days of pomp and glory.

Chilkur Balaji Temple is one of the oldest in Telengana, having been built during the time of Akkanna and Madanna, the uncles of Bhakta Ramdas. According to tradition, a devotee who used to visit Tirupati every year could not do so on one occasion owing to serious ill-health. Lord Venkateshwara appeared in his dream and said, “I am right here in the jungle nearby. You don’t have to worry.” The devotee at once moved to the place indicated by the Lord in the dream and saw a mole- hill there, which he dug up. Accidentally, the axe struck Lord Balaji’s idol covered by the mole-hill below the chin and on the chest, and surprisingly blood started flowing profusely from the “wounds”, flooding the ground and turning it scarlet. The devotee could not believe his eyes when he saw this. Suddenly he could not believe his ears also when he heard a voice from the air which said,”Flood the mole-hill with cow’s milk. “When the devotee did so, a Swayambhu idol of Lord Balaji accompanied by Sridevi and Bhoodevi(a rare combination) was found, and this idol was installed with the due rites and a temple built for it.

Sri Balaji venkateshwara, the Pratyaksha Daiva in kaliyuga, is thus available at Chilkur to shower blessings on His devotees who for any reason are unable to go to Tirupati. Many devout worshippers flock to the temple, to receive the blessings of the Lord and his consorts throughout the year particularly during the Poolangi, Annakota and Brahmothsavams with the earnest desire to revive the former glory and importance of the temple, the idol of Ammavaru was installed in 1963 the year following the Chinese aggression, and when the aggression was unilaterally vacated, Ammavaru was given the name of Rajya Lakshmi, signifying this welcome event. The unique feature of this idol is that lotus flowers are held in three hands and the fourth hand is in such a position towards the lotus feet which signifies the doctrine of Saranagathi.

Chilkur Balaji Temple has been visited by great Acharyas from time to time. A visit to the temple is a must for the Jeer of Sri Ahobila Mutt every time he visits the twin cities, and in the temple is installed the idol of the first Jeer. The Tilakayaths of Sri Vallabhacharya Sampradaya have been regularly visiting the shrine. Jagadguru Sri Sankaracharya of Sringeri Mutt and his disciple graced the efforts of the trustees in improving the temple.

Karmanghat Hanuman Temple was built in 11th century A.D (approximately 1143).

When a Kakatiya king went hunting and was resting under a tree, he heard the chanting of Lord Rama’s name. Wondering who it was in the middle of a terrible forest, he discovered a stone vigraha of Lord Hanuman, in seated posture and the voice coming from the vigraha. Having paid his respects, he returned to his capital, and that night, Lord appeared in his dream and asked him to construct a temple.

Karmanghat Hanuman Temple
 was built immediately and successive kings ruled it well. About 400 years later, Aurangzeb sent out his armies to all corners of the country to wipe out hindus and hindu temples. At this temple, the army couldnt even step close to the compound wall. When the general reported this to Aurangzeb, he himself went with a crow bar to break down the temple. At the threshold of the temple, he heard a deafening roar rumblning like thunder, and the crowbar slipped from his hands as he was shaking in fear. Then he heard a voice in the heavens “Mandir todna hai rajan, to karo man ghat” (“if u want to break down the temple king, then make ur heart stronger”) which is why the place got the name kar-man-ghat. And to this day, Lord Anjaneya sits peacefully meditating and blessing devotees, as Dhyana Anjanyea Swamy.

Karmanghat Hanuman Temple has eight-and-half centuries-old historical temple which has withstood not only Mughal emperor Aurangazeb’s vain bid to pull it down but also the vagaries of nature has now fallen into the clutches of land sharks. The Dhyananjaneya temple located at Karmanghat village in Saroornagar mandal near Hyderabad was built by Kakatiya ruler Prataparudra II in 1143 AD. It was then in the midst of a thick forest and the temple was built near a village called Lakshmigudem, now known as Karmanghat village. The village got its name following Aurangazeb’s attack on the temple in the 17th century. It is said that when Aurangazeb and his army annexed Golconda and began destroying everything in their path, that his soldiers came to the Dhyananjaneya temple. The army could not proceed their course of action due to divine intervention. “Aurangazeb himself came to the temple and heard a loud voice which said, hey Rajan Mandir Todna hai to pehle tum karo man ghat’ (if you want to break the temple, strengthen your heart first),” says a leaflet published by the authorities about the shrine. As the years passed, the ‘Karo Man Ghat’ changed to Karmanghat and the area came to be known as Karmanghat. The temple is now spread over 3 acres. It also has a one-acre pond.
