about kurnool

Also known as the Gateway to Rayalaseema, Kurnool is a culturally and historically rich city. There are many interesting places to visit in Kurnool, some of which include Mahanandhi, Jagannath Hill, Alampur and Velgode Reservoir. Situated along the southern banks of the River Tungabhadra, the town used to serve as a greasing place for carts. Historically known as Kandenavolu, the town came into prominence under King Achyuta Raya when he built the Kurnool Fort in 16 CE. Under the British rule, Kurnool was part of the Madras presidency. Culturally, Kurnool was a confluence of many religions, including Buddhism, Islam and Jainism. Geographically, the town is blessed with nature’s bounty! From mammoth mountain ranges, to a river, forests and reservoir, the place offers a lot to explore.

Kurnool holds a place of high reverence for Hindus, for it houses some of the most sacred of temples in its precincts. Apart from the religious connotations, these temples are some of the finest examples of architectural excellence. It is a quaint, little town, a happy world in itself by the mud banks of Tungabhadra and Handri. It is well known and much visited for the ancient Persian and Arabic inscriptions that enrich its interiors. Kurnool is a complete tourist spot in itself.
