Tirumalagiri Venkateswara Swamy History:
There are several interesting legends associated with the temple. It is believed that there was an Ashromam in the form a hill, which was named after Sage Bharadwaja, on the other side of Krishna River at Mukhtyala Village in Jaggaiahpeta. Once, Sage Bharadwaja was performing a severe penance seeking the blessings of Lord Sreemannarayana, the Omnipotent and Omniscient god who can fulfill human desires. Pleased with the penance, the Lord appeared on the Tirumalagiri hill with a wonderful manifestation in the form of an “Ant hill” with 12 namams.
Sage Bharadwaja became very happy and after bringing water from the Krishna River, he performed “Abhishekam” and pooja.

The festival of Kalyana Mahostvam is celebrated every year during Chaitra Suddha Pournami. Thousands of devotees from various parts of the state visit the temple and participate in the celebrations.
