Also called Amritapuri the temple is managed by the Sri Srinivasa Niketanam. There is seperate sannadhis next to the main structure for the unique Ganesha, Garuda and Anjeneya.
There are some unique vigrahams. First is the unique Navagraha Vinayakar which is a twin god sculpture with Ganesha in the front and yoga narasimha at the back side seated on Adisesha. The Nava grahas representing the nine planets are placed on the body of vinayaka in the front.
