Discovering Telangana: Andalamma old Temple Peddapalli

Today I’m gonna post about that place which is least explored. And is not even in Telangana Heritage list of monuments. While we were on a road trip to Ramagundam we thought of visiting Hanuman temple but we were lost. After asking the locals for addresses we accidentally discovered this place.

The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.  -Frank Lloyd Wright

Andalamma old temple, a late medieval period temple is located in Dharmabad village of Peddapalli district.  It is located 39 KM towards East from Karimnagar.

Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart. -Arthur Erickson

It seems to be the temple and mandapa was constructed during the Qutub Shahi period when Vaishnavism was spreading in the Telangana region. There are no Idols in the temple. It was not at all maintained/worshipped since ages.

It is secluded and is almost deserted.

This temple’s architecture is so unique and beautiful. I hope Archaeological survey of India (ASI) should take over this place and develop it into a tourist destination.20190616_145806_pic_edit_20190616211448-01.jpeg

This is one of the best get-aways for all those Karimnagarites. If you are looking for any couple shoot kind of a thing or if you are an architecture lover. Then you can visit this place…

Sunday Sunset in Palamoor

As a passionate traveler, I love to explore many sunsets across the world and capture those Sunsets, as they always evoke good memories. But I never imagined that viewing sunset from Devungutta hill, Mahubnagar will be this magical. I indulged myself into this irradiating surrounding. Almost as if the sky has wrapped itself around the world, like a comforting blanket. Nothing could replicate this feeling.

Every sunset, puncturing feelings I’ve never felt before. Feelings and sights that put even the most beautiful sunsets to shame.

Saturday Story: Thinking Out of the Box

Many hundreds of years ago in a small Italian town, a merchant had the misfortune of owing a large sum of money to the moneylender.

The moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the merchant’s beautiful daughter so he proposed a bargain.

He said he would forgo the merchant’s debt if he could marry the daughter. Both the merchant and his daughter were horrified by the proposal.

Black or White?

The moneylender told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty bag.

The girl would then have to pick one pebble from the bag.

If she picked the black pebble, she would become the moneylender’s wife and her father’s debt would be forgiven. If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father’s debt would still be forgiven. But if she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into jail.

They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the merchant’s garden. As they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles.

As he picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two black pebbles and put them into the bag!

He then asked the girl to pick her pebble from the bag.

What would you do?

If you had to advise her, what would you have told her?

You might think these three possibilities:

1. The girl should refuse to take a pebble.

2. The girl should show that there were two black pebbles in the bag and expose the moneylender as a cheat.
3. The girl should pick a black pebble and sacrifice herself in order to save her father from his debt and imprisonment.

However, the above story will hopefully make us appreciate thinking outside the box.

The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles.

“Oh, how clumsy of me,” she said. “But never mind, if you look into the bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I picked.”

Since the remaining pebble is black, it must be assumed that she had picked the white one. And since the moneylender dared not admit his dishonesty, the girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into an advantageous one.

Moral of the story:

It’s always possible to overcome a tough situation throughout of the box thinking, and not give in to the only options you think you have to pick from.
