About 70 kms from the twin towns of Warangal and Hanamkonda is a village called Palampet which is completely lost in the middle of civilisation. The journey is one of the best I have ever travelled and what is interesting is that there was not a single milestone that will tell me that I am on the right route. The reason I say this is that the 13th century Ramappa Temple in Palampet built by the Kakatiyas is claimed to be a tourist site and there is nothing remotely touristy about it. The lake which is just half a km from the temple is said to as ancient as the temple, created by the Kakatiyas as well. It is like an earthen dam which is about 2000 feet long and it forms a lake around the hills . And there is a lake shore temple there as well.
