Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy devasthanam
Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple is a Hindu temple located in Ananthagiri, Vikarabad district Vikarabad in Telangana, India. It is a temple of Lord Vishnu. The Head priest of this temple is Sri Nalapur Sitaram Chary. According to Skanda Purana, it is believed the temple is installed by the Rishi Markandeya in Dwapara Yuga. Attracted by the peaceful atmosphere of Ananthagiri hills Markandeya Rishi came here for yoga sadhana. Every day Markandeya used to go to Kasi from Ananthagiri to take a holy bath in the Ganges through a cave due to his yoga sadhana. On one day he was not able to go to Kasi as Dwadasi enter the early hours of the morning. Lord gave Darshana in a dream and arranged the Ganges to flow to perform a holy bath for Rishi.
The temple is about 75 km from Gachibowli, Hyderabad. The commute is a decent 2 lane road to the temple.
TSDC has a resort as well. I did not stay there though.
