Nagunur Fort

This fort ramparts wee once alive with the sounds of bustling town and people of the Kakatiya Empire. The fort is testimony to the imperial powers of the Kakatiyas; it was one of the most important forts of the emerging Kakatiya Empire and contains ruins of a cluster of Kalyana & Kakathiya temples. The pillars and galleries around the Shiva temple here are worth seeing. The most important temple in the complex is the Shiva temple, which has three shrines. The main entrance to the temple is on the northern side and the three shrines face the other three directions. The beams of the temple have sculptured images of musicians playing on Mridangam and other instruments. Panels are carved with visuals of dancers; in graceful poses.
