Top of Nagulagutta......from this view point we can view 10 villages around and manair river.

Annaram is situated near Manakondoor of Karimnagar district.
Agriculture is the back bone of the village.

Annaram place is popular\famous for Hanuman Temple surrounded with a hill(Oora Gutta) and lake(Oora Cheruvu) on both the sides.It is a beautiful place to enjoy in spiritual as well as natural atmosphere.
During the occasions at home and festivals people will offer prayers to the Lord Hanuman with gatherings.

People going on the way to karimnagar through Annaram, will take rest for few minutes at temple premises.

A traditional aspect of this scenario is that people feel their prayer to God would fulfill with few minutes of stay in temple premises.

Very soon i am going to introduce each individuals in this blog. I am in a plan of their photo session :)


First i would like to and proud to introduce famous Artist PT Reddy, who born,brought up and lived in a artistic village Annaram.

Great Artist PT Reddy is From Annaram
P. T. Reddy, Neo-Tantrism, and modern art in India.

Articulating the Modern Neo-Tantrism and the Art of P.T. Reddy

About PT Reddy(Pakala Tirumal Reddy):
Several bad accidents have happened to people who stand on their heads in ecstasy over his canvases, and some even to those who do so just to understand art better. P T Reddy's art is known to have that effect, on both the connoisseurs and the greens.

Pakala Thirumal Reddy was a man of many shades, working tirelessly over a career spanning 60 years - on wood (bought from the local mandis) and canvas, and using oil paints, water colors and sketch pens. Over the years, he produced more than 3,000 paintings, the majority of which are well-preserved at Sudharma.

Sudharma looks rickety, with its Hawa-Mahal like balconies facing the road. But the fact that they have held their sway since 1972 is indication enough of the tenacity of the man behind the scenes. Decades saw him building the collection that now graces the 3 floors of the building, and then some more.
Sudharma - P T Reddy's Art Museum

3-4-574, Narayanaguda Main Road Opposite INTUC, Narayanaguda, Hyderabad - 500029
Telephone: 2756-1866, 94400-57048, 94406-52340

A major part of his work was done during the tumultuous freedom struggle, and then during the muscle-flexing that occurred while the Indian Diaspora was building its own identity. His versatility and genius is reflected in the diverse themes, medium and colors that he used to gloss his art with.

After his demise, wife Laxmi continues to keep all his work, which includes statuettes, carved figurines, trophies and some beautifully executed pillars and corners, all done in wood. Equally interesting are his paintings, sometimes with abstract and tantric representations of Lord Ganesha, and sometimes very live and vibrant, with rural scenes and portraits. The Kiss (a series of erotic drawings) and numerous other oils and sketches exploring eroticism are especially well-acclaimed.

Besides these, the museum's collection includes paintings of his contemporary artists like F N Souza, Mohan Samant and K S Kulkarni, and also younger artistes like Laxma Goud, D L N Reddy, Vaikuntam and many others.

Established in 1972 and functional till Reddy's death in 1996, the museum is not open to the casual surfer. For people genuinely interested in his work, and for those who keep an academic interest, Laxmi Reddy is only too eager to oblige. The browsing is free, but you have to book a prior appointment. With the government's attempts to shift the works of art to the Salar Jung Museum, and Reddy's demands of an independent place and a sustainable stipend, the museum might well stay where it is. But let's hope it gets back into the mainstream of art soon enough.

Annaram famous Sri Anjaneya Temple located next to the bus stand , has an interesting history.

I would like to thank all of them who supported n supporting to update this blog.
