Evidence Of Tengalana’s Kakatiya Dynasty’s Architectural Excellence Uncovered!

Jan 19, 2017

Warangal and Hanamkonda in Telangana had a circular city plan, with a Shiva temple in the center, making them crucial archaeological evidences of the architectural expertise of the Kakatiya kings, reported Dr. George Michell, founder member of the Deccan Heritage Foundation, on Monday.

Michell being an expert in South Asian architecture, pointed out how the Kakatiyas had made their military plan as a symbolic base with swastika, used the city as a cosmogram (a flat geometric figure depicting cosmology, which is the science of the origin and development of the universe) and also uniquely constructed the city in three concentric circles.

He called for more research in the area and the need for aerial mapping and architectural documentation of the historic sites in Telangana.
