    The government of Telangana has said that the domes on the new Secretariat building were built to resemble different temples, including the Hanuman temple in Gujarat’s Sarangapur. The designs also include Neelakanteswara Swamy Temple of the Kakatiya period in Nizamabad and the Rajaprasads of the Wanaparthy Samsthanam. This statement came after the BJP accused the government of reflecting the culture of Nizams. The State BJP president threatened to demolish the domes if BJP was voted to power in the upcoming elections. However, he later denied having said that.

    According to officials, four types of domes have been built with up to 90 tonnes of iron used in their construction. The main building has two ‘Bahubali’ domes constructed on the lines of Taj Mahal and Gulbarga Gumbaz. The new secretariat has 34 domes and figures of lions, the national symbol, on two big domes. The main domes are 82-feet high and 52-feet in diameter. The interior is designed in the style of a sky lounge offering a view of the surrounding city. It is also a VIP zone where the chief minister holds important meetings.
