Temple of Sanghi

The Temple of Sanghi on the top of the hill, Paramanand Giri, can be seen from far away. The Raja Gopuram of this sacred temple is as high as 15 feet. The view of the Sanghi Temple atop the hill is simply amazing. The presiding deity of the Sanghi temple is Lord Venkateshwara. The idol is 9.5 feet tall. It looks very similar to the deity in Tirumala. The huge gateway or the Maha Dwaram is the entry point from the road that leads to the temple on the hill. The staircase that goes up the hill is adorned with elephant heads curved out from stone.

On the way to the temple, one stops to pay homage to Lord Anjaneya. He is the son of Wind God and is believed to lead the devotees to the divine place where God dwells. The shrine of this God stands by the stairs that goes up to the Sanghi Temple.

The complex of Sanghi Temple has been built in the style of Chola and Chalukya architecture. To the right of the main deity, stands the consort of Venkateshwara, Goddess Padmavathi. Surrounding the main temple in Sanghi are various other temples.
