CHITTOOR - SAMPADA VINAYAKA AALAYAM

This up-coming headquarters town of Chittoor district is the seat of a wide variety of Gods and Goddesses studded to its bounds, like Sivaalayas, Ramaalayas, Sakti temples and Vinayaka mandirs of various sizes, with distinct types of prayer services carried on with great devotional fervor. Among the famous and much-visited Vinayaka mandirs, the Sampada Vinayaka temple lying about 200 yards off the old bus stand deserves first mention. It is an ancient temple built according to silpa sastra housing many mini-mandirs for the most adorable Saivate deities. It contains a spacious garbha griha and vast hall in front with Pradakshiaa path. The image of Vinayaka in standing posture, facing west is quite attractive and bends the heads of the devotees in soulful veneration., Huge crowds visit this little, significant shrine both in mornings .and evenings and is patronised by rich merchants and big industrialists. Periodical festivals are carried on a grand scale. Besides the locals, they attract devout bhaktas from far off places. Another one near the Sugar Mill, built recently has great pull; for the labourers and farmers who are profited by the factory are visiting with commendable piety. Regular prayer services are conducted with due devotion. It is also a single-celled mandir but independent one and lies in the sequestered locality exuding sublimity. And there are many mandap in the town adored with the charming icons of Vinayaka at several places.

This can be reached by town bus from either bus stand or railway station of Chittoor town of Andhra Pradesh.
