Horsley Hills

Horsley Hills is a summer hill resort in Andhra Pradesh, about 140 km from Bangalore, India and 144 km from Tirupati. Madanapalle is the nearest town and Koundinya Wildlife Sanctuary is located 87 km away from Hills.
Horsley Hills History:
The old name of Hills was Yenugu Mallamma Konda. According to legend, there used to be a little girl named Mallamma who was taken care of by Elephants. She used to heal the tribal people on the hills. When she disappeared suddenly the people thought that she was a goddess and built a temple for her. The Hills is named after a British officer named W.D. Horsley, the Collector of Cuddapah district. He visited this place around 1840-43 and was impressed by the beauty of the hills and chose this spot for his summer residence. Now the Governor of Andhra Pradesh uses this house as a summer residence and hence this house is called the Governors bungalow.
