Sri Ranganatha Temple (375 Yrs Old)
Gandhichervu, Hayathnagar, Hyderabad Gandhichervu was a big village in dense forest in the past years. One day few Saints were passing through Koheda (a place in Hayathnagar) Hanuman temple. Lord Sri Ranganatha sat on a hill and called them, he said to saints that I am in a nearby Snakes nest. Sri Ranganatha ordered them to takeout Him from the nest and perform rituals. Saints informed this to the Patwaris (head of the villages in olden times). Patwaris thought that they are saints and they ignored their words. On the same day Sri Ranganatha had appeared in their dreams and whipped them severely. Later in the morning they started searching for these saints, at last they found them and requested to show the place where Sri Rangantha can be found. Saints and Patwaris went to that Snakes Nest which was of 25fts. They moved Sri Ranganatha's Idol from nest and placed the Idol on a bullock cart with the help of the villagers. Saints started prayers and requests to Pravu Sri Ranganatha to select the place where He wants to be established permanently. Bullock cart started from Koheda and stopped at Gandhichervu gutta. Saints and people have established Him on the present hill top. Grand celebration takes place at this temple on every Vaikunta Ekadashi and Sri Rama Navami.
