Svayambhu Temple
At the centre of Warangal Fort is an archaeological zone containing an enclosure with the excavated ruins of a Siva Temple, demolished probably by invading armies from Delhi. These fragments, arranged in a large field, are from granite pillars, ceilings, and brackets, part of what must have been a monumental temple and sub-shrines. Seen here are multisection mandapa pillars and a sanctuary entrance frame with intricately carved capital and Siva dvarpalaka.
