History of Karmanghat Hanuman Temple:
The temple was built in the 12th Century A.D.; a Kakatiya King hunted in a forest, felt tired, and rested under a tree. While he was sleeping, he heard the chanting of Lord Rama. The King went into the forest to find where the voice was coming from. After walking deep into the forest, he finds an idol of Lord Hanuman in a sitting posture, and the voice is coming from the Stone idol.
That night, Raja Pratap Rudra dreamt about Lord Rama instructing him to construct the Hanuman temple, and the very next day, he laid the foundation stone for the temple. Thus, the Dhyana Anjaneya Swamy temple was built in the 12th century, and the stone idol of Lord Hanuman meditating on Lord Sri Rama was enshrined.
