The Kohinoor Actually Belonged To This Telangana Temple

The Kohinoor Actually Belonged To This Telangana Temple. The priceless Kohinoor diamond, which is now on display at London’s Jewel House, originally belonged to a temple in Telangana. King Pulakeshin II of the Chalukya dynasty constructed the Bhadrakali Temple in 625 A.D in Warangal, Telangana. When the Kakatiya rulers took control of the region, they made Goddess Bhadrakali their “Kula Devatha” and attached the Kohinoor diamond to the deity’s left eye. During the Kakatiya era, Kohinoor diamond was quarried first in Kollur mines.

 

 

In around 1310 AD, the Sultan of Delhi Alauddin Khalji acquired the diamond with the help of his general Malik Kafur. As per sources, it was also one of the stones of the Mughal Peacock Throne. It passed through several hands and dynasties until the British took over Punjab in 1849, captured the Kohinoor diamond and gifted it to Queen Victoria. 

Bhadrakali Temple-The Original Owner Of Kohinoor Diamond

Lying among Warangal and Hanamkonda, the Bhadrakali Temple is one of the most seasoned hallowed places devoted to Goddess Bhadrakali. As uncovered by the contents on the sanctuary wall, King Pulakeshin II had laid out the holy place to praise his triumph over the Vengi locale. The sanctuary lies on the bank of Bhadrakali Lake, enclosed by repeating greens. The beautiful lake sits in the midst of the enchanting slopes. Many stealing from exercises had diminished the sanctuary to ruins until Sri Ganesh Rao Sastri revamped it during the 1950s alongside a few well off locals.

The Deity Has Powerful Eyes And Eight Hands

Goddess Bhadrakali or Bhadrakali Ammavaru is accepted to be an embodiment of solidarity for ladies. The old Chalukya design of the sanctuary with the regular magnificence in the scenery will blow your mind. The entry of the sanctuary has dashes of Kakatiya engineering as well. Bhadrakali Temple is a profoundly peaceful place where the memorable appeal meets the tranquility of nature. The brilliant shaded sanctuary wears a heavenly shine during dawns and nightfalls. The single stone model of Goddess Bhadrakali at the sanctuary has strong eyes and eight arms with various weapons.
