Temple's Speciality:

   Lord Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal blesses the devotees with all the basic needs of life as education, prosperity, courage etc. Lord Vinayaka of the temple is heading the nine planets. As a mark of Saivite-Vaishnavite Unity, Lord Yoga Narasimha, is gracing the devotees from the back of Lord Vinayaka sitting on a five headed serpent facing west. While performing abishek to the nine serpents (Nava Nagas) around Sri Anjaneya, we can notice that the colour of milk turns blue while flowing from Vasuki in His left hand.

General Information:

   It is the staunch belief of the devotees that adverse aspects of Planet Sani Bhagwan-Saturn would vanish if they surrender at the feet of Lord Prasanna Venkateswara.It is noteworthy that the point from where we pray to Lord Vinayakka is under the Zodiac sign roof. Irrespective of his/her birth day, star and the ascendant sign, graceful look of Lord is ever open to the devotee for all reliefs.


   Those facing adverse effects of serpent planets, those born under the Kalasarpa dosha (that is the native will have Rahu at one end and Ketu at the other end or vice versa with all remaining seven planets captured in between them), those facing delays in wedding, those seeking child boon, seeking freedom from poverty, those seeking justice (really just) in court cases, those aspiring academic excellence, those seeking courage to undertake any work, pray to Lord Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal.

Thanks giving:

   Praying to Lord with a pure mind on Tiruvona Star day by itself is the prayer commitment. Praying to Lord Vinayaka ensures all happiness in life, says Vruddhachala Purana. All adverse aspects of planets disappear.

Greatness Of Temple:

   Traditionally, Hindus begin any proposal only after Lord Vinayaka worship to avoid obstacles.? He is the authority to stop any interruptions in human efforts, if prayed first.? As head of the planets, He has Sun on His forehead, Moon in the belly, Mars the lord of immovable properties on His right thigh, Mercury in His right lower hand, Jupiter on His head, Venus in His left lower hand, Blessing Saturn (Pongu Sani)on the crow facing south in His upper right hand, Rahu on the upper left hand and Ketu at His left leg.??As a rule in temples, Lord Yoga Narsimha is shown behind Chakkarathazhwar shrine. Here, as a token of Saivite and Vaishnavite harmony, Lord Yoga Narasimha is at the back of Lord Vinayaka. To emphasize that essence of Yoga is conquering the five vices ? Kama the family pleasures, Krotha the anger, Greed, attachments with worldly pleasures and pride and arrogance, Lord Yoga Narasimha is in a standing posture on the five headed serpent. Sri Anjaneya appears very gracefully with Sanjeevi herbal mount on His right hand to cure diseases, a club on the left hand to protect the devotee from enemies, a bell on His tail announcing victory and His leg forward to respond the call of the devotee. Sri Garuda Bhagwan appears holding the Nectar Post on His right upper hand, serpent Vasuki on His left upper hand and holding the Vedas in His lower hands worshipping them. Nava Nagas-nine serpents are around Him. He protects His devotees of adverse effects of serpent planets and more particularly from Kalasarpa doshas. Devotees perform abishek to Him with milk. They can notice the colour of abishek milk changing to blue while flowing through Vasuki in His hand.
