Sri Soumyanatha Swamy Temple Nandalur Andrapradesh

The prime attraction of Nandalur is the temple of Soumyanatha Swami. Soumyanatha Swami is another name and form of Lord Venkateshwara. The temple is constructed with 108 pillars and is built in a plot containing ten acres. The temple has four Raja gopurams overlooking the four directions. The main idol is Sri Soumyanatha Swamy facing East. Legend has it that the Lord is another Avatara of Sri Venkateswara Swamy. Tirupati is towards the east of Nandalur. The idol resembles the idol of Sri Venkateswara Swamy in Tirupati, the only difference being here in Nandalur, the Lord has "Abhaya Hastham" carved on it; normally in all the temples dedicated to Sri Venkateswara Swamy, the idol will be carved "Kati Hastham". Teh temple also contains a shrine dedicated to Sri Yoga Narasimha Swamy near to the entrance of the sanctorum.


 Every year during the month of July, Kalyanotsavam to the Lord is performed at the temple. Nandalur is one of the two temples in Cuddapah district where the Government sends pearls to the Lord during the performance of Kalyanotsavam; the other place is Ontimitta which is about 16 kilometers from Nandalur.Though the temple is in Andhra Pradesh, which is a Telugu-speaking state, there are more Tamil inscriptions on the temple walls than Telugu inscriptions. On the walls of the temple there are symbols depicting fish, the Sun and the Moon. There is also a carving of a huge fish on the ceiling of the temple. Local tradition states that some day the fish will turn alive and swim in the ocean.The whole of the temple is constructed with redstone. The pillars of the Mandapam (porch) have lion's heads at the bottom of the pillar. There are other small temples of Prayoga Narasimha Swami, Ganapati and Anjaneya and a huge Yagnashala in the complex. There is also small pond in the temple premises.
