According to locals and priest  here -

During the great vijayanagara ruler Sri Krishnadevaraya , Wanaparhy King visited the famous Sri Ranganayakaswamy temple located and Srirangam and desired to built a similar temple near by his place and Later, in his dream, Lord Vishnu said that his is located at a certain place in his own kingdom and will be shown to you by an eagle (garuda).

So, the next day the king followed the eagle and found the Lord Vishnu idol between Karapakala hills and Kothakota. He constructed this beautiful Ranganayaka Swamy temple close to the Ratna Pushkarini Lake and Lord instructed to build temple at a place where the Eagle disappears - thats how a temple has been constructed here and there is a huge water body where a reservoir is also built .

It took  35 years to complete the temple and its an architecture marvel - ideal for Bird Lovers and Nature Lovers for its serene and Peaceful atmosphere and Surroundings

Toilets are available near the temple and small shop where one can have some snacks or packed chips , cool drinks and water bottles are available.

I have seen few pre-wedding photo shoots from near by villagers happening at this place and this temple has also been shown in different telugu movies and few by SS Rajamouli too

Temple Timings:

The temple is open for the visitors from Morning 6:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Evening 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

-- We Started at 6:00 A: from Hyderabad - Except Crossing Shamshabad No traffic has been encountered and cool nice breezy weather added much to the Monday Morning Drive and we could reach the Temple by 9:30 

Route was all straight like arrow and Turn towards Pebbair and From there around 11 kms inside we could reach the temple

Let the Pics do the talking

I had visited this temple during my 50th Birthday drive 5 years back. This temple is owned and managed by the family of Wanaparthy Maharaja. (Not under the Endowment department). 

 

There is a painting museum with in the temple complex which has collection of Wanaparthy Maharaja family with rare golden  paintings. That is open only with recommendation. 

Museum is in two levels and one floor is dedicated to Temple art and Gods other one is general paintings. Second one is covered under CCTV hence no photos. Some photos from museum

In the same trip, day one we had spent at Srisailam and Day -two, we had visited Kollapur - Madhava Swamy temple originally built by Srikrishna Devaraya now re-located at Kollapur due to Srisailam Dam, Surabhi Palace (Private property) and also visited Somasila and Jetprol before visiting Sri Rangapur in the last. 

 

Now TS Tourism cottages are available at Somasila and Jetprole (two at each place).
