Yeah, we already know that Taj Mahal is the top viewed monument among Google Street Views in Asia. But what about the glorious street views in our Telugu states? Don’t they deserve their share of viewing too?

1. Singoor Dam

This dam is built on the river Manjeera, the source of Hyderabad’s drinking water. It’s quite a scenic tourist spot too, and we’re sure you’ll agree!

P.S. This place has a sizable crocodile population too, for the pleasure of all you animal lovers!

2. Durbar Hall, Golkonda

Golla konda, which literally means “shepherd’s hill” has been a place of historical and tourist interest over the years. The fort served as the capital of medieval Golconda Sultanate (c.1518–1687), and was also the home of the famous Koh-i-noor diamond!

3. Talupulamma Lova

This is a temple of the local deity Talupulamma, in Lova village, East Godavari. Nearly 8 km from Tuni, it’s located on a hillock between Darakonda and Teegakonda at Lova village.

4. Medak Church

This cathedral is the largest in the state of Telangana, and one of the largest in Asia! It boasts of magnificent stained glass windows showing various events in Jesus Christ’s life!

5. Nagarjunakonda

Named after the great Nagarjuna, this is a historical Buddhist town, now an island near Nagarjun Sagar. Nagarjunakonda once had many Buddhist universities and monasteries, attracting students from as far as China, Gandhara, Bengal and Sri Lanka!

6. Silathoranam, Tirumala

It is a natural arch on the Tirumala Hills, and is one of the few such arches in Asia. “Sila” means ‘rock’ and “thoranam” means a garland strung over a threshold, connecting two vertical columns.

7. Gandikota

The veterans among you will be reminded of the 1969 film ‘Gandikota Rahasyam’, and the young lot will remember ‘Maryada Ramanna‘ (the climax was shot here). This wonderful village is known for its gorge view point, which came to be known as the ‘Grand Canyon of India’! Just look at the splendid view, people!

8. Manyamkonda Hill

Located in Mahbubnagar district, this hill has a shrine of Lord Venkateswara at the top. It is also a popular trekking spot for the adventure enthusiasts!

9. Thousand Pillar Temple, Warangal

Nothing speaks of Kakatiya history quite like the Thousand Pillar Temple. Believed to be built by King Rudra Deva in 1163 AD, it is a specimen of the 12th century Kakatiya architecture!
