Hyderabad to Chaya Someshwara Temple - day trip

Recommended Posts

Distance :

150 Kilometres to temple site. Approx

Route we took : 

Gachibowli via Nehru Outer Ring Rd and NH65

Road condition :


Restaurants :

You can find many on the highway like Vivera, N grill. we had lunch at Hotel Durga near Narketpally. Food is excellent and good service.


Recently went a day trip to (12-Aug-2019) Chaya Someshwara Swamy Temple at Panagal, is an Ancient Hindu Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, located in Nalgonda District of Telangana.  we started around 8 am and reached the temple by 11.


The Deity in the temple is famous as "Chaya Someshwara Swamy" due to the Vertical Chaya (shadow) present in daylight, on the Shiva Lingam forming a permanent shadow of a pillar. This shadow is constant and visible from sunrise to sunset everyday.


The construction of this temple is marvellous which features such exceptional sight. The whole atmosphere is very peaceful and serene. The temple premises is cool and so much reminded us the Ramappa temple. Around 1 pm we started back to Hyderabad, roads are excellent, reached Home by 4 pm. Over all its a relaxing drive and pleasant darshan.


Sharing some pics.
