There are various testimonials to state the historical and religious importance of this place. It is said that King Satakarni (241 BC), the son of King Sreemukha of Satavahana dynasty, while going on Jaithra Yathra (victory lap) from Paithan (Prathistanapuram, present Aurangabad in Maharashtra state), made a halt at Nandagiri village and very much enjoyed the natural beauty of the place and constructed a Gagana Mandiram (Sky palace) on the top of the hillock. Its ruins are visible even now. Later on, it is said that the 17th king in the Satavahana Dynasty, King Hala (who wrote “Gatha Saptha Shathi” in Pyshachika language) and his wife resided at Nandagiri. Even though the Satavahana kings practiced Jainism and Buddhism, they also patronized Vedic religions. They constructed temples as per the Advaitha culture on the advice of vedic scholars.

Nandagiri in Karnataka is the famous Nandidroog, which was captured by Lord Cornwallis on his march to Seringapatam. From early times the Ganga Princes possessed the title of "Nandigiri Lords." The origin of this place may be found in the tradition that Vishnu Vardhana of the Eastern Chalukyas dynasty settled at Dharmapuri on the western bank of the Godavari river. Four hundred villages or towns became subject to him. His son was Nandu, who built a town called Nandagiri, in which the four castes of Hindus were located.
Nandagiri was ruled by a Bijialudu in the sixth century CE. He constructed the Saraswathi temple at Basar. In the 17th century, the idols of the temple were reinstated by a chieftain of Nandagiri (Nandeed) subsequent to destruction caused by the Muslim invaders.
