the self-same compound of Mother Alimelumanga temple at Tiruchanur, this famous
Vaishnava temple is situated next to Sri Krishna Mandir which is lying to the

looks exactly like that of Tirumala Balaji. And many mistake the icon as Balaji.

daily worship is offered at four times a day and annual festivals are celebrated
with great pomp and splendour.
