TONDAVADA - AGASTHEESWARAALAYAM

This sacred shrine lies at the confluence of three rivers Swarnamukhi, Bhima and Kalyani. As the Sivalinga was installed by Agasthya Mahamuni, it is called Agastheeswara linga. This temple faces east and has almost all parivaradevathas installed in well-built niches like Ganesh, Subrahmanya etc. The Dwarapalakas at the entrance are beautifully sculptured and are heightening the grandeur of the hall. It has three entrances and a grand compound wall. Inside the second prakara, there is a separate shrine for Mother Parvati called here by the name of Vallimata. There is a tank outside the compound for the convenience of visiting pilgrims. The nearby village was named Tondavada by the kings of Chandragiri, as it was the place used as a rest house for visitors and keeping elephants also.

Just opposite the Aalaya and in the middle of the river there is built a mantap in which installed the beautiful statues of Balaji, Ayyappa, Ganapati, etc. They are visit-worthy. And there is a small shrine too for Sri Rama, Sita, Lakshman and Anjaneya near the tank and it is built in recent times.

It lies at about 12 km to Tirupati, the world renowned Vaishnava kshetra in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.
