   HISTORY


                                 Keesragutta Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Siva and his consorts Bhavani      and Sivadurga at Keesaragutta in Rangareddy district. It is about 35 km from Hyderabad and 10 km from      ECIL. it is located on a small hillock. The temple draws thousands of devotees on Shivaratri.

     Sri Rama installed the Shiva lingam here to atone for the sin of killing Ravana, a Brahman.  He selected      this beautiful valley surrounded by hills and verdant greenery for the purpose and ordered  Hanuman to      bring a Sivlingam from Varanasi. Hanuman was late in arriving with the Shiva lingam and as  the ausicious      hour was nearing, Lord Siva himself appeared before Sri Rama and Presented a Sivlingam for installation.      Hence the lingam in the temple is called Swayambhu Linga. It is also called  Ramalingeswara as lord
     Sri Rama had installed the lingam.

     Hanuman returned with 101 lingams for selection from Varanasi and felt aggrieved at not  having his      lingam installed. Hence he threw them all over the area. Even to this day several lingams are  found      scattered all over the place outside the temple.

     To mollify Hanuman, Sri Rama ordained that precedence would be given to him for worship at the temple.      He also said that the hillock where the lingam was installed would bear his name kesarigiri  
     i.e., Hanuman , the son of Kesari. Over a period of time, it has become corrupted and is now know as      Keesara and the hill as Keesaragutta. Ever since, the rituals follow the command of Sri Rama.
