Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple at Pedda Chintharevula was constructed by Sri Vyasarayala on getting information from the general public that Sri Seshadasula, a patwari was conducting the puja there. The temple was constructed in 18th century at Pedda Chintharevula village for Sri Anjaneya Swamy . This temple is the oldest existing temple in this area. It is surrounded by many villages. The temple is situated in Dharoor Mandal in Mahabubnagar District. Sri Seshadasula, had been a “Patwari” for the village of Dharoor under Gadwal kingdom,. Dharoor is about 10km from Pedda Chintharevula. Sri Seshadasula had been known by the name Seshagiri Rao during 1802 to 1885.
There is a legendary story that while working for the king, he had some differences with the King Soma Bhupal and had resigned from the post of the patwari. In a bid to end his life, he wandered to the village Pedda Chintharevula which is located in the forest, put his hand in a termite hill and slept while weeping. His attempt was to end his life resulting from the termite bites. While in this position, he dreamt that Lord Sri Anjaneya Swami was telling him that He had been in the termite hill since long and that Sri Shesadagula should dig the hill and perform puja for two days while fasting. Meanwhile, Thimmaiah, the present ‘Patwari’ of the Revulapalli village which is about 3 kms away from the Pedda Chintharevula village also got similar instructions. He had been instructed by Sri Anjaneya Swami to help Sri Seshadasula for conducting puja and sevas. The puja was conducted for a few days and later a small temple had been built in the same spot with the help of the villagers. Now formal puja archanas could be carried out.
