Horsley Hills is a famous summer hill resort in Andhra Pradesh, about 140 km from Bangalore, Horsley Hills is the departure point for the Koundinya Wildlife Sanctuary located 87 km away.
The old name of Horsley Hills was Yenugu Mallamma Konda,situated in kurnool district . 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, people thought that she was a goddess and built a temple for her.
Horsley 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.
