    In Karimnagar, in the Kondagattu area, a story is told of Hanuman setting out to bring the Sanjeevani herb to revive Lakshmana, who had fainted during the battle between Rama and Ravana. As Hanuman brought the herb, a part of the Mutyampeta area broke off, forming what is now known as the Kondagattu mountain.

    The idol at Kondagattu has faces of Nrisimhaswamy on one side and Anjaneyaswamy on the other, consecrated by all the villagers. Anjaneya is depicted with two faces and conic chakras that are believed to have Sitarama in the heart.

    Legends also mention that a piece of the Sanjeevani mountain fell during Lord Rama’s journey to Lanka, becoming Kondagattu. Devotees visiting the temple can witness what is believed to be tears shed by Goddess Sita.
