This city was second capital of Vijay Nagar Emipre in early 16th century. Barring a few smaller monuments in the city at bottom of the fort hill such as Gagan Mahal, Parshwanath temple, Thimmarasu jail and Syed Fakruddin grave , the main fort for which Penukonda is known on Andhra Pradesh Tourism map is utterly neglected. I think no tourist with family can reach the fort as there is mud road and even auto can not reach before 4 Km from Lakshmi Narayan temple and main fort. Very difficult to get guide here.
This temple has something more to offer to tourists as many stories are associated with this temple unlike other temples.
