A+ A-Author: Mohammed HussainHyderabad: Laxman Bagh 18th century temple at Rai Durgam in Hi-tech City is not an eyesore, it rather looks like a wretched memory of devotees who once prayed.
Although construction and demolishment are lined alongside gateway to the temple it is standing still in an epiphany which reminds us of neglected heritage.
A graffiti on the temple wall reads “I am orphan adopt me,” with a tag #Hyderabadheritage, alongside, collage of wall advertisements can be seen on the entire arched boundary wall of the centuries-old temple on the Old Bombay Highway.
The road is taken by techies who travel from central and western parts of the city, it makes them think of nothing but pity.
“I think it is perhaps the oldest temple in the Western Hyderabad,” said Mohan, a resident of Manikonda who works for Verizon in Hitech city, “I take this road every day and look at the temple, sometimes there is rubbish and sometimes construction waste, surely no one takes care of Hyderabad heritage,” he added.
