The original name of this place is Kondakavuru, but now it is popularly known as Kotappakonda or Trikutaparvatam. This temple came into existence even before 1172 AD. It is believed that Zamindars of Narsaraopet, Amaravathi, Chilakuripet and several others collectively donated large acres of lands for the maintenance and development of this temple. The uniqueness of this temple is that only three peaks can be seen from all the direction and hence it is also known as Trikoota hills. These three peaks are known as Brahma Shikharam, Rudra Shikharam, and Vishnu Shikharam.


Brahma Shikharam is the main temple which is located on this hill.The Paata Kotayya temple is located at Rudra Shikharam. This is the original place where Trikoteshwara Swamy existed. Pleased by the devotion of Gollabhama, Lord relocated to Brahma Shikharam. Since then it is known as Paata Kotayya temple.Lord Papanaseshwara Temple is located on Vishnu Shikharam. Here, the Lord Vishnu did penance to please Lord Shiva. The temple has a holy pond which is known as  “Papanasa Teertha”.

And one day, when the lady was on her way to the temple, a crow troubled the lady by seeing the fruits. The lady got angry and cursed the crow saying that it cannot enter the temple premises. Even today, we cannot find any crows around the temple premises.
