The Department of Archaeology & Museums, Telangana is successfully re-constructing a Kakatiya-era Trikutalayam at Jakaram village, Jayashankar-Bhoopalpally district. The four layers of stone vergams of Adhistana of this Trikuta temple have been erected. The Trikuta temples represent the glory of Kakatiya architectural style and there are many such temples built all over the region as Kakatiya rulers were great patrons of religion, culture and traditions.
