History of Kondagattu Temple

Kondagattu Anjaneya Swamy

About four hundred years ago, a herdsman named Singam Sanjeevu came to this hill station to graze cattle in the presence of the Kodimyala. Meanwhile one of his cattle had escaped from the herd. Unable to find the cow, he got tired and fell asleep under a tree. In his dream Anjaneya Swami came and I was in the bush here. He disappeared, telling me to track down his stray cow to protect me from the sun and rain.

Sanjeeva got up and looked for the bushes and found the idol of Anjaneya Swami. Vapors of bliss came with the pure devotional feeling of Sanjeeva, and Swami touched their feet and raised his hand to Swami and bowed. Immediately his cow, which had been thrown from a distance, caught sight with voiced Amba.

Sanjeeva, who was in a state of devotional ecstasy, was overjoyed. Swami immediately informed his friends and colleagues about this and with their help set up a small shrine for them.

According to folklore, the present temple was restored by Krishna Rao Deshmukh 160 years ago.

Since then, the importance of the temple has grown so much that it has become one of the most famous shrines.

In the temple precincts, one can still see the Bhetaala idol and the naturally formed Koneru hillock. The city of Jagityala and many other landscapes can be seen from the top of this cliff.
