Popular as Killapuram, this small but significant village once carved out a great name for enshrining a famous temple for Vinayaka, went by the name of Ganapatheeswaralayam first, and later Sahasralinga Ganapatheeswara aalayam. According to sthalapurana, this temple along with the village was built by Gona Canapathi Reddy to perpetuating the glory of his overlord-Ganapathy Deva of Kakatiya dynasty, and his name too. The erst-while name of this tiny village was Naginenipalli, but after building the temple he converted it into Ganapuram. This is an imposing temple with vastness in everything of its construction. It is befitting the royalty in whose name it was . erected. Alas! it tasted the wrath of Allayuddin's religious fanaticism. And later it was made a mosque, yet the great structure is still broadcasting its former glory by being treated as a protected Hindu monument. Ironically, there is no trace of mosque. This imageless Vinayaka shrine is still visited by theists and tourists, as it is a monument of great spiritual significance.

It is in Ganapuram of Nagarkurnool taluq of Palamur district of Andhra Pradesh, accessible by bus.
