ANNAVARAM

In popular esteem temples and Tirthas that are famous for their holy antiquity are reckoned as manifesting the divine far more in abundance than places of recent origin. Yet the grace of the Lord is an ever-flowing one, and its strength cannot be tested merely by the age of temple.

Just like any other institution, a temple also appears to have a cycle of its own. There are temples which have a very hoary tradition, and which have sunk into oblivion, whereas many comparatively recent temples have assumed holy and sacred importance.

The Annavaram temple is an instance of the latter kind, and is an example of a temple, which is not ancient, and which is at the same time very powerful in its influence.

The temple is of recent origin. There is no Sthala mahatmyam for the temple. There are also no worthwhile epigraphic records in the temple. In short, there is nothing particular to mention about the temple.

All the same the temple is a famous one in Andhra and attracts pilgrims in very large numbers since the Lord here is a powerful one.
