Madanapalli is an educational and cultural center from the days of Dr.Annie-Besant, the great theosophist. The medical institutions like the Government Hospital, M.L.L Hospital, and Rajkumari Amrutkour T.B.Research Center are worth mentioning and now synonymous with Madanapalli Town. Featuring a pleasant climate throughout the year, Madanapalli is famous for agricultural products like tomato, mango, groundnut and tamarind. The old house of Jiddu Krishnamurthy, the great Philosopher and the founder of Rishi Valley Public School is also worth visiting. This historic house is now being renovated and proposed for housing a public library as well.
