Ramappa Temple Being Readied For Greater Glory
If it meets the criteria, the 800-year-old Kakatiya structure may make it to World Heritage list
Serish Nanisetti

The temple gopuram is a speck of white in the iridescent canvas on the left side of the Mulugu-Palampet road. A narrow road with paddy fields on either side leads to the 800-year-old Ramappa temple built during the Kakatiya rule. The road that branches off from the two lane road is set to be the main pathway for entrance to the temple. As district and Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) officials race to prepare the site for a visit by the Unesco team, the surrounding areas of the temple have been turned into a beehive of activity.

The Unesco team’s visit is part of the program that might lead up to inscription of ‘The Glorious Kakatiya Temples and Gateways’ on the list of World Heritage Sites. As Jaipur has already been inscribed as a World Heritage City, the path is clear for Ramappa temple to get the coveted inscription if it meets the criteria.
