Jain Temple – Kolanupaka (Near Warangal) – 81 Kms
Kolanupaka, Telangana, India
Actually we have heard of temples 1000 year old or so in telangana but its hard to believe that Kulpakji temple is 2000 years old jain temple at the village of Kolanupaka in Nalgonda district. The temple houses three idols: one each of Lord Rishabhanatha, Lord Neminatha, and Lord Mahavira. The image of Lord Rishabhanatha, carved of a green stone has been historically famous as “Manikyaswami”. The temple is about 80 km from Hyderabad on the Hyderabad-Warangal Highway NH 163.
The interior of the temple is made by red sand stone and white marble. Lord Rishabha, popularly called Adinath Bhagvan, was the first Tirthankar in the Jain religion. It is believed that the original idol of Lord Adinath, known locally as Manikya Deva, has made Kolanupaka its abode.
The temple was recently renovated by employing more than 150 artisans from Rajasthan and Gujarat supervised by Sompuras. The old garbhagrah was preserved and a complete new temple was created surrounding the existing tower.
