The small village of Pendalvada falls within the Talamadugu Mandal in Adilabad district. The popularity of the village is primarily attributed to the presence of the Veer Hanuman Temple.

The Pendalvada Hanuman Temple is particularly famous owing to the interesting legend associated with it. It is said that that the Hanuman temple was originally located in Saidpur Sanghi, 8 km away from Pendalvada. However, a huge flood that occurred around 200 years back washed the temple away from Saidpur and onto the shores of Pendalvada. The people of Pendalvada, considering it to be the divine wish to be with them, expressed their reverence and respects by establishing him in the village temple. Since then the Hanuman Temple in Pendalvada has acquired great focus for visitors and locals of the village.

Located at a distance of 28 km from Adilabad, Pendalvada is conveniently accessible for most tourists. Devout followers of Hanuman, the monkey God gather here to offer their prayers and seek his blessings. The place receives the maximum footfalls on the auspicious occasion of Hanuman Jayanthi. Thousands of devotees particularly those who have been granted the Hanuman Deeksha (instructions on chanting prayers and hymns of Hanuman) come here to express their devotion and participate in the celebrations. The idol of Veer Hanuman is decked up in flowers and other finery and special Pujas are organized as part of the day’s celebrations.
