Divine in Medak

8 Kms from Medak District at Edupayala is the Edupayala Vana Durga Bhavani temple dedicated to the most powerful Goddess Kanakadurga. According to the legend, Maharaja Parikshit (the grandson of the great warrior Arjun) performed "Sarpa Yagya" to get rid of a curse. And when Garuda, the eagle, was transporting the snakes used in the Yagna, their blood is said to have fallen in seven different places. And the place where blood spilled became streams. All the seven streams meet here at Edupayala to form river Manjeera. This picturesque location marks the confluences of these seven rivulets into the Manjeera River and hence the name Edupayala, which in Telugu means Edu (seven) and Payalu (streams).

The Edupayala Durga Bhavani temple is a highly revered shrine of goddess Durga bhavani in the Telangana state. Edupayalu is an unusual place with many natural stone formations. On the day of Shivaratri and Maagha Amavaasya, the locals celebrate a jatara.
