Sitaram Bagh temple or Seetharambagh temple is an old temple located in Mangalghat, a suburb of Hyderabad. This is one of the oldest Hindu Temple in Hyderabad dedicated to Lord Rama and his wife Sita.

It is listed as a heritage building by INTACH.

Thanks to my friend Rajesh Pamnani, we got access to shoot the temple's celebrations to mark its 180th year.

This Temple was built by Puranmal Ganeriwala, in the 1830s. Its architecture style is a mixture of Rajasthani, Mughal and European. It was constructed during the regime of Qutub Shahi Kings. It was supported by the Nizams. There is a 20 feet’s high wall surrounding this temple and thus it looks like a fort. The major area of this temple is dedicated to open scrub and the minor one is to the complex of temples, samadhis and residential quarters. The courtyard presents a new facet, style, structure and one would be thrilled to see it with surprises.

The major sanctum sanctorum of Lord Rama and Sita is carved through marbles and there are also shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva, Lord Hanuman, Goddess Lakshmi, and Varadarajaswamy within the temple.
