We have seen shrines for Hindu gods and goddess but there are very few shrines built for noble men and great leaders. Nalgonda district now has the distinction of one such unique shrine, that is becoming quite popular. In a first-of-its-kind structure, Pedda Kaparthy village near Chityal town of Nalgonda district in Telangana is home to a Mahatma Gandhi temple which has been drawing attention from everywhere.
The father of the nation, is worshiped here as god while devotees come here to seek blessings and offer prayers. Gandhi temple which was opened for public in September 2014, is being maintained by the Mahatma Charitable Trust. There are two priests here who offer prayers to the presiding deity, the father of nation followed by special hymns written exclusively for Mahatma. There is a meditation room, built as part of the building. The temple has been built on four and a half acres of land, with plans afoot to further develop the shrine complex with spiritual and peaceful attributes.
