|Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Temple Anakapalle|
Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Temple of
Anakapalle is a locally very famous Hilltop temple in the surroundings of
Anakapalle town of Visakhapatnam city. It is blessed with beautiful sceneries
from the temple. A devotee can see the completely Anakapalle beautiful area
from this temple. It is considered to be the branch of Annavaram Satyanarayana
This temple is situated over the
top of the hill. So all the devotees and visitors have to climb all the steps
on foot. Temple’s way steps are very quiet steep and very tiresome. There is
another way also for the motor vehicles but only for two-wheelers. This road is
also not good and needs to be maintained.
Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Temple of
Anakapallle is considered very sacred and famous so that many functions or
marriages of local peoples take place inside the temple. Of course, as the
temple is very remote and difficult for everyone to climb over the hill to
reach the temple so the visitors on regular days would be very few.
On weekends, holidays, and
Sundays, there would be more visitors than on normal days. There would be only
one priest that would be busy in the temple regular activities and worship of
