History of Kasapuram Anjaneya Swamy Temple :
During 14 century, Shambhukarna was born as “Vyasaraya“. Since Shambukarna was an assistant for Lord Bhramma. Vyasaraya was the most favoured supporter of Lord Anjaneya and had the chance to see the Lord in actual form.
Vyasaraya could never take his food without offering pujas to the Lord. Throughout the nation, Vyasaraya remained at the ashram of Vijaya Dasara Teertha Swamy at Silpagiri (now Chippagiri in Kurnool Dt).
He was in dreams during the course of a temporary guest at Silpagiri. To demonstrate the dream, Lord Anjaneya appeared and said that he was under the neem tree.
When he arrives the place the tree becomes fresh and by digging the idol becomes more bright and vanished so saying. Furthermore, Vyasaraya went by the then known town Nettikallu and found the place which the Lord had let him know in his dream.
The minute Vyasaraya went to the site, with the dash of his feet the neem tree began bearing new leaves.
Immediately he sent for the town seniors and dug the site for the 10 feet Idol of Lord Anjaneya. The Idol glowing of its perfect wonder was taken out and was reinstalled at the present site of Kasapuram Anjaneya Swamy temple with full religious customs.
