Munigadapa Siddipet

Archaeology officials have identified an ancient idol Shaivite Veeragallu at a farmer’s field at
Munigadapa village of Jagadevpur. It belongs to 12-13th century AD.

Assistant Director of Archaeology and Museums, Telangana, P Nagaraju clarified that some locals mistook it as idol of lord Shiva, but actually it is a Veeragallu idol. “Number of such idols have been found across Telangana in the past too,” said Nagaraju.

He further said that they were planning to make a visit to Munigadapa after informing the Director of Archaeology and Museums, NR Visalatchy to find out if there were any historical sites that were located at Munigadapa. The idol was found at the farm of farmer Vadde Narsimhulu on last Thursday. Locals, Krishna Murthy and Venkata Swamy identified it recently.
