About Munnangi History
According to the history, in early eighteenth century, a large group of devotees (Munis) gathered from different parts and participated in mass prayers near river Krishna.
They called this place as Muni Koti Puram (large group of devotees represents koti munis). After being called with the same name for almost 500 years, this village name is changed to Munnangi many years back. While these devotees are coming from different places they took some rest near bunch of trees (Vanam) and they named that places as Evani and later it changed to Emani which is our neighboring village.
After Nagarjuna Sagar dam was built, village lands started getting enough water for Rice, Turmeric, Banana and Chilies cultivation. Munnangi village started developing and this brought many changes.The land in the village is still mainly agricultural and gives employment to many people. The ZPPH School was started in Munnangi in late 1970s' and is now a well known school in the surrounding villages. It educates a number of students who live in the village and the surrounding villages (Danthuluru and Pidaparru).
