History:-The temple was in existence even before 1172 A.D. Among several kings who ruled the place Sri Krishna Deva Raya gifted large chunks of lands for the maintenance of the temple. The Zamindars of Narsaraopet Chilakuripet, Amaravathi and several others, have donated liberally for the development of the temple. The height of the Kotappa Konda or Kotappa hill is 1587 feet and the Temple of Sri Trikoteswara Swamy is at the height of 600 feet.
These three peaks(sikharam) are known as Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra. Anent to the legend, Lord Siva after destroying Daksha Yagnam pacified and converted himself into a 12 years old boy and with a great deal of austerity commenced penance as Dakshana Murthy in Kailasam. Then, Lord Brahma and other Gods appraoched and offered prayers to Dakshana Murthy and entreated him to impart the knowledge of Brahma. Dakshana Murthy accordingly agreed and asked them to come to Trikoota hills where he imparted them the knowledge of Brahma making these hills very sacred.
