Sri Yaganti Uma Maheswara Temple ( Yaganti)

Sri Yaganti Uma Maheswara Temple (యాగంటి) is a holy place in Kurnool District, there are several caves naturally made which adds the scenic beauty of the place Yaganti.

Every year Shivarathri is celebrated and a large number of devotes visit Sri Yagantiswamy temple. An amazing feature this temple is its Pushkarini . No one knows that water flows out from the bottom of hill to the pushkarini in all the seasons. Devotees consider that a bath in the holy pushkarini is highly beneficial and then they paid tributes to lord Shiva.

                                                                                                                                                                              Growing Nandi :  The devotees believe that the Nandi idol in front of the temple is continuously increasing its size. The locals say that the idol was initially much smaller than its present size. They say that certain experimentation was carried out on this idol and it was said that the type of rock out of which the idol is carved has a growing or enlarging nature associated with it. As per Archaeological Survey of India the rock grows at the rate of 1 inch per 20 years (10 mm per 8 years).

It is said that people used to do Pradakshinas (rounds) around it in the past. The temple staff has already removed one pillar as the size of the Nandi has increased.

According to Potuluri Veera Brahmendra swamy, the Basavanna (stone nandi) of Yaganti will come alive and shout when Kali Yugam ends.
