Chandragiri is one amongst the major places which holds the legend of the past and the beauty of today. With several magnificent palaces and a beautiful Chandragiri Fort dating back centuries, it is definitely a weekend getaway for history-lovers and for those, who boast of the everlasting greatness of the country.
The recorded history surrounding the fort started in 300 BC when last Shruthakevali Bhadrabahu and Chandragupta Maurya visited the place in order to attain religious peace. The small hill derives its name of Chandra because Chandragupta was the first of the rishis who lived and performed penance there.
Chandragiri is historically important for its connection with the Aravidu dynasty of Vijayanagar in southern India. When the dynasty’s empire was overthrown at the Battle of Talikota (1565) and the great city of Vijayanagar was taken by the allied Deccan army, the reigning Aravidu raja fled to Penukonda, nearly 200 miles (320 km) northwest of Madras.
