Once, the great emperor of Vijayanagara dynasty Sri Krishnadevaraya visited Srirangam temple in Tamil Nadu and fell in love with the splendour and engineering prowess of the temple and decided to build a temple which resembles Srirangam in his kingdom. Then Lord Vishnu appeared in his dream and said that his idol is lying in the kingdom and an eagle will guide him to that place. The other day the king followed the eagle and he discovered an idol between Kothakota and Kanvyapalli mountains. Later, the temple was built by the Kings of Wanaparthy Samsthanam.
