History of Kondagattu temple

About 300 years ago, a farmer called Singam Sanjeevudu after losing one of his buffalos, came to this hillock searching for it and slept there. In his dream, Lord Anjaneya came and told him the whereabouts of his buffalo. After he woke up and looked around the hillock, he found an illuminating idol of Anjaneya. Later, he built a small temple for the lord at his current location. But, the current temple in Kondagattu was built by Krishna Rao Deshmukh in the middle of the 20th century.

It is a common belief here that, people who do not have children will be blessed with a baby if they offer 40-day prayers to Lord Anjaneya Swamy. Hanuman Jayanti is the main festival celebrated here at the temple every year. It is a common practice here, where devotees perform Hanuman Deeksha for a period of 41 days during Hanuman Jayanthi and visit Kondagattu Hanuman Temple on a walk.

Every year, more than 4 lakh people visit this temple during Hanuman Jayanthi to offer their prayers to god. Apart from the temple, some other popular attractions here are Kondalaraya Fort and Bojjapotana caves near Kondagattu. The times to enter the temple are 4 AM to 8.30 PM.
