Sri Siddi Vinayaka Swami Temple information

Sri Siddi Vinayaka Swami Temple

Sri Siddhi Vinayaka Swamy temple is an ancient and very popular shrine in the Konaseema area. The Vinayaka idol here is said to have been installed by Veda Vyasa, the author of the Mahabharata. According to the kshetra purana, Daksha Prajapati is said to have offered prayers to this Vinayaka idol before embarking on his ill-fated Yagna. There are several sub-shrines here. Sri Kesava Swamy (Vishnu) is flanked by SriDevi and Bhoo Devi. The other shrines are dedicated to Sri Annapurna Devi, Sri Kalabhairava Swamy and Sri Visveswara Swamy. There is also a shrine for Lord Ayyappa, obviously a recent addition. The sanctum is just past the entrance, over which is a three-tiered gopuram. The image of Sri Siddhi Vinayaka is gold-plated. The temple itself is small, as compared to the other big, famous ones, but the crowds it attracts has to be seen to be believed. Devotees from far and near visit this temple, and then return to fulfill their vows. Ainavilli is 72km from Kakinada. The route is decidedly shorter, and more enjoy able, if you take the ferry at Kotipalli and then hire an auto on landing. It is 55km from Rajamundry. Amalapuram (14km), the nearest town, can be accessed both by buses and share autos.
