Sri Veda Narayana Swamy Temple – Nagalapuram


Nagalapuram Temple History

Sri Veda Narayanaswami temple is located in Nagalapuram, 60 km southeast of Tirupati. It is believed that Lord Sri Maha Vishnu, in the form of Matsya, killed the Rakshash (demon) Somakudu here, and retrieved the Vedas from the latter.

The sanctum sanctorium houses an image of the Matsya form of Vishnu, with Shridevi and Bhudevi on either side. A peculiar feature of the idol is that it holds the Sudarshana Chakra in prayoga (ready for release). The temple was constructed by Sri Krishnadeva Raya, the Vijayanagara emperor, and is a fine specimen of the Vijayanagara style of architecture.

The most important annual festivals in this temple are Brahmotsavam, and Surya Puja along with the Float festival, conducted on the 12th, 13th and 14th days of the month of Phalguna. The annual Brahmotsavam is conducted in the month of Jyeshtha.

During the Tirupati Daily tour package organised by APTDC this temple would be covered along with Narayanavanam temple.
