Into the wild
A Bright Star in the Galaxy of Temples
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ramappa Temple is located in the state of Telangana in southern India. Dedicated to Shiva, the ancient Indian temple’s intricate sculptures are an architectural marvel: On black basalt pillars are carved mythical animals, musicians, and female dancers with their elongated bodies and heads in sensuous postures.
The Niagara of India

Stroll along the forest
Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary
A gem perched away in Mulugu district’s Eturnagaram village, Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary is home to tigers, leopards, wolves, and pythons. But it’s also home to friendly locals— you’ll discover and know more about the everyday life of local indigenous residents as you roam the place. The sanctuary has some of the best trekking and hiking trails in the district. And on a lucky day, you might just spot a purple squirrel.
Walk above water
A popular tourist spot in Telangana, the Laknavaram lake is a serene water body located in the Jayashankar-Bhupalpally district of Telangana. The lake’s history goes back to the 13th century; it was built during the ancient Kakatiya dynasty. But here’s why you should visit the lake: Laknavaram’s hanging bridge will make you feel like you’re walking on water. And a lush landscape completes the entire experience.
When nature imitates art
KONDETI VIEW POINT
There are two ways to experience Kondeti View Point: from above or up close. When you observe the landscape from an observatory, you’ll witness an almost map-like image: streaks of water cut into a brown ground decorated with dark strokes of green. But on land, size expands: distant streaks transform into streams of graceful waters; the faraway green strokes are now lines of majestic trees. Kondeti is truly nature’s unspoiled child.
A blast from the past
In a dense forest near Dameravai village, prehistoric tombs reside on a 5000-year-old hill named Suragun-daiah Gutta. The tombs and their ancient history can take us back in time to know more about prehistoric man.
