Sri Ranganayaka Swamy Temple in Wanaparthy District of Telangana State

Sri Ranganayaka Swamy Temple in Wanaparthy District of Telangana State: The Sri Ranganayakaswamy Temple is in the Wanaparthy District town of Srirangapur. In the 18th century A.D., the Sri Ranganayaka Swamy Temple was built.

Krishnadevaraya, the ruler of Vijayanagar, is said to have gone to Srirangam and been amazed by the Sri Ranganayakaswamy Temple there. He wanted to build a temple for the god Ranganayaka Swamy in his kingdom. Later, Lord Vishnu (Ranganayaka) came to the king in a dream and told him that his idol was in the kingdom and that an eagle would lead him there. Krishnadevaraya followed the eagle the next day and found the Lord’s idol between the Kothakota and Kanvayapally mountains. Near Ratna Pushkarini Lake, the king built the Sri Ranganayaka Swamy Temple. The Temple is a great example of the architecture of Vijayanagar. The Rajas of Wanaparthi Samsthanam built the temple on the edge of Ratna Pushpakarini Lake.
