Sanghi Temple-Lord Venkateswara Temple Andhra Pradesh,India

Sanghi Temple

  • Destination: Hyderabad
The prime deity at the Sanghi temple is Lord Venkateswara, 9-½ feet tall. The doors of the main entrance of the temple complex are large, beautifully structured and welcomes every visitor from a huge Maha Dwaram. As we move further there will be long steps leading to the entrance of the temple. The architecture of the temple is of Chola-Chalukya style and all Hindu Gods are establishished here. The temple was constructed in the year 1991 on a hillock called as Paramanand Giri and is 25 kilometres away from Hyderabad.
When we look from bottom of the hill, the three Gopurams look as they are towering into the blue sky. Before moving into the temple we can see Lord Anjaneya, son of wind God and people say that, he shows way to the home of Gods for the devotees. Lord Anjaneya, who is red-faced, is a feeling of death for the demons, when we think of his name.

Small Temples of other Gods

We can see small temples in the complex dedicated to Padmavati, Shiva, Rama, Anjaneya, Ganesha, Navagrahas, Goddess Ashtalakshimi, Durga and Kartikeya. Pavitra Vanam or a holy garden is also present in the temple complex where we can see special leaves and flowers are grown for performing rituals to the Gods in the temple. There is Kalyana Mandapam in the complex where marriages and other auspicious ceremonies are celebrated. Every day different rituals are performed for the Gods whereas some special rituals are performed during festivals.
