KALKAVATAR KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Sitanagar - Balaji Aalayam

This temple built in recent times has some gruesome past. It is said that a great devotee desiring to build a grand shrine all by himself for Lord Venkateswara atop the hill, started building a broad flight of stairs first. And making of the Balaji icon simultaneously. So far, so good! floor man did not estimate properly the enormous expenditure for such gigantic task that consumes not lakhs but crores. Soon all his lifelong savings touched the bottom of his treasure, so he gave up the attempt and left this world with an ardent hope that some one would fulfill his desire. God, perhaps, pitying him woke up a god-mended man, who took up the onerous task. And with the goodwill of many like minds, he is nearing the goal. The blue print is quite ambitious, but it will certainly see the light of day. The archamurti now standing in a make-shift mandap is an exact proto-type of the Tirumala Balaji, in height, sheen, size and external polish. Daily puja is offered. And if devotees visit with handfuls and fill the hundi, soon it will rise to the height of Tirupati; for, Bhagawan Balaji never, lets down any saranagatha. He lifts and emancipates at the right time.

It is in Sitanagar of Vijayawada, accessible by auto or town bus from railway station or bus stand.
