Kasapuram Nettikanti Anjaneya Swamy Temple Legend

Sri Vyasaraju who was the Spiritual Guru of Sri Krishna Devaraya of Vijayanagara empire while on his journey took a halt near Shilpagiri (also known as Chippagiri) with his disciples. Anjaneya Swamy appeared in the dreams of  Sri Vyasaraju and provided directions to the place where the temple can be built. Sri Vyasarju along with his disciples started searching for the place in the forest and planted a neem stick on a sand heap. To their surprise, neem stick started growing and leaves started appearing on the dry neem stick. Thus this place came to know as Nettikallu.

Sri Vyasaraju installed Anjaneya Swamy Idol at this place and this kshetra called by Nettikanti Anjaneya Swamy.
