Kotappakonda, the Temple abode of 'Trikoteswara Swamy', is a village, 13 kilometers South - West of Narsaraopet in Guntur district. Its original name is Kondakavuru, but is more popularly known as Kotappakonda or Trikutaparvatam, a three-peaked hill nearby. The Temple is dedicated to Lord Siva that was created on a hill with one thousand steps.

Though surrounded by other hills, the three hills, also known by the names of Trikutachalam or Trikutadri, can be distinctly seen from a distance from any direction. And the three peaks are described as Lord Brahma, the god of creation, Lord Vishnu, the preserver god and Lord Rudra, the god of storms.

The epigraphs at Kotappakonda clearly state that the deity established in the shape of Siva Linga on the hill top is known as 'Trikuteswara' or 'Trikoteswara'. A steep flight of steps leads to the hill and the deity is located at a height of 1,587 feet. There are a number of ponds on the hill of which eight are located in front of the temple.

Mahasivaratri, which falls during February-March, is the important festival celebrated here with great devotion and fervor every year and a large number of devotees throng the place.
