Visakhapatnam city will soon have a new spiritual and tourist attraction with the temple of Lord Venkateswara being built by the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) on 10 acres nearing completion.
Special pujas, including ‘Maha samprokshanam’, will be performed at the temple complex from August 8 to 13 by the priests from Tirumala. The newly built temple will be opened for darshan from August 13.
The temple, being constructed
at an estimated cost of Rs. 28 crore, is located atop a hill near the Gayatri Vidya Parishad (GVP) College at Rushikonda. A road being laid from the foothill to the hilltop is almost complete.
