Govindarajula Gutta is a holy place for the practitioners of the Hindu faith. A popular tourist attraction, there is a temple dedicated to Lord Ram at the top of the hill (‘Gutta’ in Telugu) while a temple in the name of the Lord’s most prominent devotee, Lord Hanuman is located under it. Steps that amount to a hundred in number are to be climbed in order to reach the top of the hill, and it is advisable to take extreme care as the steps are sculpted out of rock and quite risky to maneuver.
During the Sree Rama Navami festival, Govindarajula Gutta sees its most popular period and throngs of devotees can be seen in the vicinity. A huge Ratham (or Chariot) made of precious materials rests on top of the hill, and this is believed to have been built by the Hazaris of Warangal.
