At a distance of 75 Kms from Warangal and 11 Kms from Ramappa Temple, Ghanpuram Temples (also locally called as Kota Gudulu) are group of 22 temples located in Ghanpuram village.

These temples are constructed within a double walled stone enclosure that demonstrates Kakatiya art and architecture. The main attraction of these temples is the one dedicated to Lord Siva. The sculptures in Sabhamandapam here are very attractive and nicely carved.

These temples are abondened & damaged; especially the Siva temple in the center has severe damages with collapsed roof. Many sculptures are scattered all around the place and many important sculptures have been theft. It looks like the Archelogical Dept. has started the renovation work here to restore the temples.

To reach these temples, go straight for 8 Kms from Ramappa Temple Arch on main road towards Ghanapuram. The temples are 1 Km from Ghanapuram village. No directions available from Ghanapuram; need to ask locals for directions.
