Considered second to only Tirupati, the temple village of Annavaram rests on the belief that its name is derived from 'Anna', meaning whatever you desire and 'Varam', which means God sent. 'The deity will bestow you with whatever you desire' goes common tongue.
This sacred pilgrim centre is thronged by lakhs of devotees every month, most of them who come to perform the special prayer (vrata), so as to please the lord they have come to worship. At a distance of 142 kilometers from the capital city of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, on the hill top of Ratnagiri is the temple village of Annavaram. The presiding deity of Annavaram is Veeravenkata Satyanarayana Swamy, a variation of the well known Hindu deity Vishnu, who, as the Puranas said, blessed the lord of the mountains, Meruvu and his consort Menaka with two sons following which the sons became sacred places for Lord Vishnu. Ratnagiri hill is the son Ratnakara while the hill Bhadrachalam is the son named Bhadra..

Temple is very well managed, even the pujaris are friendly in nature giving all the information to elders and new comers. The best thing is you will find any pushing in front of god and the pujaris/guards will give ample time for our prayers (may not be the case in rush hours). We visited on Thursday and the rush was less. Darshanam completed in half-one hour.
