Annavaram Temple History:

According to Hindu history, Lord Vishnu settled on the top of a hill like Lord Satyadev did in Vedic times. So, Lord Sri Veera Venkata Satyanarayana Swamy is the avatar of Lord Vishnu. Hence, this Temple is located on the top of Ratnagiri hill.

According to our ancestors, the Lord came into the dream of one of the zamindars, Ramanarayan, in 1891. Lord told him to construct the Temple on the top of the hill. As a result, the Temple was built on the top of Ratnagiri hill.

You can see the glory of Lord Satyadev in religious books like “Skandapuranam”. The Annavaram temple is very historical, so visit the Temple.

The Architecture of the Temple:

The Annavaram Satyanarayana Swamy temple has rich architecture. The main Temple looks like a chariot with four wheels on the four corners of the Temple. The wheels of the chariot are symbols of the passage of time. There are some other small temples around the main Temple.
