Reddigudi
There are several ruined Kakatiya temples in the vicinity. This small site on the outskirts of Ghanpur has a partly overgrown sandstone temple stiuated in a small field. A deeply moulded adhisthana surrounds the vimanam. The temple walls are elaborately stepped and moulded. The two-tiered roof above is distinctly sloping, with an overhanging eave. The mandapam and porches here are relatively smaller and less ornate but have the usual sharply cut pillars with square and circular sections. The ardhamandapa and sanctum entrance frames have pierced screens and several columns of sculpture, including Siva dvarpalakas and shalabhanjikas, but no sculpture in polished granite.
