Anjanadri - Venkateswara Aalayam

The fantastic background of this temple's emergence publishes to the world in unambiguous terms that genuine repentance brings God to the devotees' door and lifts him instantly beyond expectation. The sthalapurana says that once a Gosayi - a great follower of Chaitanya Prabhu visited the house of Jagirdar's daughter, given in marriage to a wealthy man living in the nearby village. The Gosayi enjoying the hospitality of the lady stayed for some days. And was performing Lakshmi puja in a lavish manner decorating the idol with costly jewels of his own of rare kind. The avaricious lady and her husband killed the Gosayi and appropriated them, but to what effect? Nemises ran its course and took away the life of the greedy man. The lady returned to her father's house with heavy heart. Deciding to put the entire ill-gotten wealth into hundi, she decided to go to Tirupathi. Then happened a miracle. She dreamt that night that Bhagawan Balaji directing - "you need not come to me, but I will come to your place. Build a temple for me in expiation of sins". At this juncture, a cow-herd, when possesses instructed her to visit a boulder on a hill under which he is abiding in a small cave and offer worship. She obeyed at once. When found as said she carried on puja programme elaborately and regularly. And built a garbhagriha there. The Lord started raining boons on the genuine adorers, Later, the Lord advised her in a dream to build a befitting temple at the foot of the hill. Deeming it a golden opportunity for spending the amount appropriated from the Gosayi, she built a temple.

It faces east and contains all the parts in addition to Adhyayana mantap and mini-shrines for Alwars. Its architectural beauty is quite impressive. The Mulabera is kept there on the bill and so the priests go every day to the hill and offer first worship to the Swayambhu and then to the archamurti in the newly built temple. Many land lords liberally endowed the temple with valuables and lands for its maintenance. The Brahmotsav celebrated in Magha masa is a big draw and lures huge crowds.

It lies in Vanaparthy mandalam of Palamur district in Andhra Pradesh, having all bus facilities.
