TADPATRI

The other temple, namely, Chintala Venkataramana. Murti temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The tradition has it that this was built by Sri Timma Naidu, son of Ramalinga Naidu, who built the Siva temple and that this was also built under the orders of the Vijayanagar kings so that people may have the facility of worshipping both Lord Siva and Lord Vishnu at the same place. The temple has been built strictly in accordance with the Silpa. Sastras, and with the Garbha Griha, the Madyaranga, the Astana Mantapa, the Antarala Gopura, the Prakara, the Yagnasala, the Kalyana Mantapa etc. These contain sculptures from the Ramayana and Bharata epics. Originally the temple was called after the Lord Chintala Tiruvengala Nathaswami. The word Chintala was used to describe the Lord, since the Moola Bhera was discovered at the foot of a tamarind tree.
