SRI SURYANARAYANA SWAMY TEMPLE
The one of its kind Lord Sri Suryanarayana Swamy temple is located opposite to Padma Saraovaram-the temple tank of Sri Padmavathi Ammavaru temple in Tiruchanoor, about 5km from Tirupati.

The presiding deity of Lord Sri Suryanarayana Swamy in this ancient temple is believed to have been installed by none other than Lord Sri Venkateswara Himself as a token of His worship to the Sun God.

According to temple legend, after Goddess Lakshmi left Vaikuntha notwithstanding the ignominious gesture of Sage Bhrigu who hit Lord Mahavishnu on his chest, which happens to be Her dwelling place, Lord also left Vaikuntha in search of Her. He happened to meet Goddess Padmavathi Devi and wished to marry her for which he required lot of wealth. For “Lakshmi Kataksham” he offered penance for twelve long years worshipping Lord Surya, the eternal power which is responsible for birth and growth of the entire humanity and fulfillment of aspirations. Lord Surya appeared before Lord Sri Maha Vishnu and granted His wish and hence this place is also called “Bhaskara Kshetram”.

Venkatachala Mahatyam states that Lord Suryanarayana was instrumental in blossoming of the Golden Lotus in full splendor from where Goddess Padmavathi emerged from Padma Sarovaram.

As a mark of tribute to Sun God, Lord Mahavishnu in His incarnation as Lord Venkateswara constructed a temple and consecrated a fine black stone statue of Lord Suryanarayana, located 20feet towards the east on the bank of Padma Sarovara and to the north of Sri Alarmelmanga Tayar sannidhi in Sukapuri, the legendary name of present Tiruchanur.

All the rituals in this temple are as per vaikhanasa agama tenets.

SRIDEVI BHUDEVI SAMETHA VENKATESWARA SWAMY TEMPLE, THONDAMANADU
This historical temple was constructed by Sri Thondaman Chakravarthy, king of “Thondamandalam” and elder brother of Goddess Padmavathi Devi.

The significance of this ancient temple is that the Structure of the sanctum sanctorum of the temple is like “Ananda Nilayam” of Tirumala Temple. This temple is located about 30km from Tirupati and 6km from Sri Kalahasti.

According to temple legend, Thondaman Chakravarthy used to go to Tirumala frequently to worship Lord Venkateswara Swamy. As years passed by, due to his age he was unable to reach Tirumala and prayed Lord His for darshan. Moved by his devotion, Lord Venkateswara blessed him and granted a boon and appeared in his house along with Sridevi and Bhudevi.

Tondaman Chakravarthy constructed a temple for the Lord and His two consorts here and paid his tributes everyday till his last breath. The Moolavarlu of this temple will be in sitting posture.
