Anegundi is a village in Gangavathi taluk of Koppal district, located on the banks of river Tungabhadra. It is an ancient village over 5,000 years old, referred as Kishkinda-The Kingdom of the Monkey King Sugriva , also mentioned in the epic of Ramayana. The Heritage site of Hampi is hardly at a distance of 5 kms from Anegundi. Anegundi in Kannada means 'elephant pit', named so, because the elephants of the Kings of Vijayanagara were kept there. It is just opposite to the ruined capital of the Vijayanagar Empire. Anegundi's architectural heritage is still relatively unspoiled and an inspiring landscape makes it not only a historical heritage site, but a living, natural tourist destination. The village consists of several ancient temples and temple complexes. It is also the cradle of the Krishnadevaraya dynasty of the glorious Vijaynagar Empire. Anjanadri hill, the birth place of Monkey God Hanuman and mountain Rishimuka are the other places near Anegundi associated with Ramayana.
