|2 Ratings & 2 Reviews||
Hanamkonda, which was also known as Hanuma/Hanama-Konda, is a village founded by two brothers, Kondaiah and Hanumaiah, during the Kakatiya Dynasty.
One can visit numerous Hanuman temples in this village which is also a reason for the town’s name. It is believed that when Lord Hanuman was returning with the Sanjeevni Mountain, a few stones fell out of it, which formed hills at this place.
