Ghanpur Ghanpur
The Ganapesvara temple is a rarely visited, ruined, 13th century Kakatiya temple complex. It is located at a partly-excavated spot amidst rice-fields, outside Ghanpur, a small village near Palampet. Both the temple and the village are named after Ganapatideva, the Kakatiya ruler during whose reign the temples were constructed. The complex, locally known as Kotagullu, consists of two east-facing Siva shrines, both smaller than the Ramappa temple, but with the same complicated cruciform plan.
