As referred earlier, legends and history meet together to narrate one and the same amazing story and it was the story of rage of Goddess Gangamma to abolish the Navab’s army. Even though the Boyas and Yelikas tribe in the forest area around the hillock united together to fight against the Navab’s army, when the Golconda Navab rushed additional massive troops of trained army , the untrained tribal fighters could not withstand the situation. They retreated and fled into the forest seeking the help of their Goddess. And it was believed that Goddess Shakthi took a mighty physical form and descended from the hillock to crush the Navab’s army. People believe that the Goddess removed the heads of Navab’s soldiers and tied the heads to the Banyan tree branches. Goddess Gangamma is the incarnation of Shakthi and this temple was constructed to commemorate that great event.
In 1990 the Gangamma temple was taken over by the Endowments Department and since then the administration of the temple has been taken care by an Executive Officer and actions were taken to develop the temple and to improve its facilities.
