ANNAVARAM

Thrikala archana is performed every day both to the Yantra as well as to the idols. Salagramams of great value and efficacy and Sri Chakram in crystal are also worshipped along with the main idols.

On the ground floor of the Garbhalaya the idols of Aditya, Ambika, Gananatha and Maheswara are installed in the Four Corners and all these with the main idol of Lord Satyanarayanaswami in the centre form the Vishnu Panchayatanas.

The main temple is constructed in the form of a chariot with the four wheels at each of the Four Corners. In front of the main temple is the Kalyana mantapa, cons- tructed and decorated with modern pieces of architecture.

As we go down the way, we come across Ramalaya and then the shrines of Vana Durga and Kanaka Durga.

Goddess Vana Durga is held in great veneration and the Devi is said to be seen even to this day, in the nights, going about the holy precincts perpetually guarding the Lord.
