KOTAPPAKONDA

Let us first look into its antiquity and location that account for its special spiritual significance. This 1587 foot-high hill consecrated by the presence of highest divinities, such as Brahma, Maheswar and Dahshinamurti has three grand peaks called-Rudrasikharam, Vishnusikharam and Brahmasikharam, and hence the popular name of Trikutaparvahtam given. And they are quite visible for miles around. This sacred hill is situated 10 km off Narasaraopet, the taluq Head Quarters town in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh. It is accessible by APRTC buses from several towns around, and it linked by rail too. The Principal deity worshipped here is called Trikuteswaraswamy. There are many shrines both on, and at the foot of the hill dedicated to Lord Siva mainly. Among them Yellamanda Koteswaralayam deserves mention. This place was inhabited by sages in the past and was called Munimanda, due to large number of their dwellings.
