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.
