Hemavathi is a small town about 10kms from Amarapuram and 25kms from Madakasira. Located in the district of Anantapur, Hemavathi was once the capital of Pallavas. To the south-west of this village there are traces of an earthen construction indicating a fort. There are many temples around this fort which are famous for its architecture. Some of the most famous are Siddeshwara temple, Doddeshwara temple, Virupaksheswara temple and Malleswara temple. The whole of this temple complex is spread in an area of nearly 14 acres.

The town was known as "Henjeri" during the Pallava reign and was later renamed as Hemavathi.
