MANGALAGIRI

Lord Chaitanya has visited the temple in the year 1312 A.D. and the imprints of his feet and a verse dedicated to his honor are still to be seen in the temple. At the foot of the hill, there is also an inscription of the time of Krishandevaraya of the Vijayanagar dynasty that had visited the temple. On the eastern gate of the lower temple a beautiful gopura has been built over 170 years ago by Sri Vasireddi Venkatadri Nayudu, who was a famous figure in Andhra ruling from Amaravati. The gopura has eleven stories with gates facing east and west and is an excellent example of a solid construction with big proportions. There is also an ancient ratha or car belonging to the temple, with ornamental woodcarvings depicting the scenes from the great national epics of Bharata, Bhagavata and Ramayana.
