Create a custom module then create the below files.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\SpecificCategory" name="specificcategory" template="Vendor_Module::custom_category.phtml" />

Block file


namespace Vendor\Module\Block;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context;
use Magento\Framework\View\Page\Config;
use Magento\Framework\Registry;

class SpecificCategory extends Template
    private $_registry;

    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        Config $pageConfig,
        Registry $registry,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        parent::__construct($context, $data);
        $this->pageConfig = $pageConfig;
        $this->_registry = $registry;

    public function getCurrentCategory() {
        $category_load = $this->_registry->registry('current_category');
        $currentId = $category_load->getId();
        if ($currentId) {
            //write code here for current_category and pass to the template.

        return $currentId;

Template file to show output on the category page


<p><?= $block->getCurrentCategory(); ?></p>

Note:- You can impliment logic in block for specific category. I just add logic every current category.
