Sri Sampath Vinayagar temple is located in the compound of M/s. S.G. Sambandan & Co., at Asilmetta in Vishakhapatnam. It was constructed in 1962 by Late S.G. Sambandan, Late T.S. Selvaganesan and Sri T.S. Rajeswaran with their funds, for their worship and for their family members. Further, the local fishermen known as Jalaries, used to pray there and perform Deeparadhana every day before they start their daily business. Five years later, the Paramacharya of Kanchi His Holiness Sri Chandrasekharaendra Saraswathi placed "Ganapathi Yantram" with his own hands and reconsecrated the temple. Sri Sampath Vinayagar temple became very popular with an incident when Admiral Krishnan, who was in charge of Eastern Naval Command, broke 1001 coconuts before the Lord for saving Vizag from the attack of Pakistan, when its submarine Ghazi Sank off the coast here.
Sri Sampath Vinayagar temple became one of the most popular temples in Visakhapatnam attracting a large number of devotees. Sri Sampath Vinayagar is a very powerful deity and the devotees firmly believe that by offering prayers with sincere devotion, the Lord will fulfill their desires and forgive their sins.
