The idol of Hanuman was installed by Sri Vyasa Raya who was the guru of Sri Krishna Devaraya, the ruler of Vijayanagar kingdom. He lived between 1457 and 1539 A.D. Around 200 years ago, a spacious mandapam was constructed in the sanctum sanctorum by Gadwal kings and it is facing south and Hanuman idol is facing the east. There is a Kamili tree in the premises of the temple, which is located on the top of a termite hill. It is always seen with buds, flowers and fruits and around the tree, there is a platform. At the time of Chariot festival, pilgrims pull the chariot up to this termite hill and the Kamili tree.
