The temple is dedicated to the Vaishnva sect that follows the Jayakhyam Samhita, which according to its followers, was first preached by Bhagwan to Narad Muni, who in his turn recited it to five Rishis at Prabhaskshetra.
This temple's architecture is unique with its confluence of South Indian, Rajput and Mughal styles of architecture. The tiered high rise Goporam with carvings is typical of the Dravidian style. At the four corners of the temple, on the walls are placed four images of Garuda. This temple contains the main shrine of Vaikuntha Venktesh, and eight other temples dedicated to Goddess Laxmi amongst others deities.

For most Hindus, praying at temples far and near, is not just for a fleeting sense of gratification but an eternal drive of their devotional self. We worship the divine presence in our idols and the reverberating essence of holiness in our temples. The unflinching faith of the devotees have turned many of our religious places into sanctums of all powerful energy. Pilgrimaide is first of its kind platform in the world to provide its users with comprehensive, consistent and consolidated access to information on various pilgrim destinations. This is our humble attempt, as we compile data to help the devotees travel to and connect with the shrines across the country. We hope our services will help guide the devotees in their spiritual quest. For any queries or suggestions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
