History of Keesaragutta Temple:

Legend has it that Lord Sri Rama installed the Siva lingam in the revered shrine of Keesaragutta to atone for the sin of killing Ravanasura. Lord Rama chose this lovely valley with green pastures surrounded by magnificent hills and ordered Hanuman to bring the Sivalingam all the way from Varanasi, but Hanuman could not arrive on time and as the auspicious hour was approaching, the Lord Siva himself appeared before Rama and presented him a Sivalingam for installation. For this reason, the Shiva lingam in this temple is called Swayambhu Linga. The lingam is also called Ramalingeswara as it was installed by Lord Sri Rama.

Hanuman came with 101 lingams for choice from Varanasi and felt aggrieved at not having his lingam installed. Thus, he threw all over the area. Even to this day, many lingams are also found scattered outside the temple.
