SANGAREDDY: A Trikutalayam or a three-shrine temple is said to have been discovered on Friday during canal digging works for Mission Kakatiya in Pedda Kodur village of Medak.
A Dhwaja Stambham (temple flag post) and Shiva and Hanuman idols surfaced during the excavation works. The digging is being carried out on Ranganaik Sagar reservoir.
Officials feel that the temple could be as big as an acre. Villagers meanwhile say that these idols might belong to Trikutalayam and that they were constructed by Kakatiyas. The public has appealed the archeology department to protect the idols and if possible, reconstruct the temple.
