Sri Venkateswara temple, Vanatirupathi, Punnai nagar/Punniyankudi

About the temple

This beautiful temple is built by the owner of the famous hotel chain Saravana bhavan in their native place. The temple is getting popular among tourists going to Tiruchendur temple and the nearby Vaishnava Nava tirupathi temples. The temple is very neatly maintained with sannadhis of many popular deities and beautiful paintings of religious importance on the walls. There are two entrances -one of Srinivasar and another of Adinarayana perumal. The Lord looks stunning and one can have peaceful darshan without much crowd.
How to reach

The temple is about 45 kms from Tirunelveli and around 20 kms from Tiruchendur. The nearest railway station is Kurumbur on the Tiruchendur route.

Specialty of the temple

The Lord has lot of resemblance to Srinivasar of Tirumala and one can have peaceful darshan as long as one feels.

The ladoo prasadam given free to everyone also would remind one of Tirupati ladoo prasadam.

Temple timings

The temple is open from 6 am to 8 pm - no closure in between.

I really find no words to hail Shri.P.Rajagopal Annachi, the founder of Hotel Saravana Bhavan for his great contribution to the present and future humanity with such a very beautiful and most gracious temple in his place of birth. I pray Lord Venkateswara to give more and more health , prosperity & peace to Shri.P.Rajagopal Annachi and all members of staff of Hotel Saravana Bhavan to continue such noble deeds.
