Kotappakonda is a village situated on the south western side of Guntur city and is about 40 km from the city. The village lies very close to Narsaraopet and is accessible by road.. The village was initially called Kondakavuru but later came to be known as Kotappakonda.
Kotappakonda is also popularly known as Trikutaparvatam because of the three-peaked hill that lies close to the village. There are many hills surrounding the village, but the most popular of these are the peaks of Trikutachalam or Trikutadri. These three peaks can be seen clearly from all directions in the village. The peaks have been named after the three Hindu Gods who form the Triumvirate in Hindu mythology, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.
Very close to the village of Kotappakonda is situated the town of Guthikonda that is famously referred to as the Dakshina Kasi or the Kashi of the South.
