MAHANANDI

The architectural beauty of the temple, the arrangement of the tank in front and such other peculiarities that we find in the temple show that it is an ancient temple dating back to the hoary past and that it was repaired and rebuilt through successive ages by many kings. Mahanandi formed part of Kurnool Circar over which the Nawab of Kurnool was exercising sway in the 17th and the 18th centuries. The Nawab used to spend from his treasury money for the Sivarathri festival at Mahanandi, This speaks volumes to the sanctity and popularity of the temple to which even Muslim governors of the province paid some attention.

Mahanandi is not only a place of pilgrimage but also a picnic spot, in view of the natural scenery in which the temple is set. By its proximity to the hills, by the presence of perennial mineral courses all round the temple, and by its air of detached sanctity, the place attracts pilgrims all through the year. It is rightly called the beauty spot of the Nallamalais.
