Katta Maisamma Temple

Katta Maisamma Temple lies on lower Tank Bund road, close to Indira Park, between Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Katta means a bridge on bund across a river or lake and Maisamma denotes a local deity. It has been a practise in Andhra Pradesh's Telangana region to build a Katta Maisamma temple to invoke the Goddesses favours and blessings for the safety of those crossing the bridge. During the month of Ashad(July) this temple attracts a large gathering for the "Bonalu" festival. The month of Karthik is also celebrated here with great festivities.
