Sri Prasanna Venkateswara Swamy Temple:

The Prasanna Venkateswara Swamy temple is located at a distance of about 16km, from Tirupati. This temple has its uniqueness with the presence of the presiding deity of Lord Sri Prasanna Venkateswara Swamy in ‘Abhaya Hasta Posture’, which is considered the ultimate blessing posture. The Lord’s blissful posture is pleasant and rewarding for a devotee who wants to divulge deep into the swami’s realms.

Sri Prasanna Venkateswara Swamy Temple History:

Appalayagunta is a small village in and Puttur taluk, Chittoor district. In this village, there is a divine pious and precious Lord Sri Venkateswara Temple. As per hindu mythology, Lord Venkateswara married goddess Padmavathi in Narayanavanam and then climbed Tirumala. On the way to Tirumala, he visited Lord Shiva temple at kailasanatha Kona and blessed the saints there. He then left for Vemula Konda. In Vemula Konda, to fulfil Sidheswara muni’s wish, Sri Venkateswara promised the saint that he will stay there and bless the devotees. Siddheswara muni placed the Lord’s idol down the hill, built a temple and named the lord there as “Prasanna Venkateswara Swami”.

In this temple The lord can be seen in Abhaya Hastha posture, indicating that the Lord will come to the rescue of the devotees. No where we can find lord in seating posting with Sri Devi and in Abhaya Hastha posture. The hidden meaning is to convey to the devotees that the Lord Sri Venkateswara will come to the rescue of only those who fall at his feet, i.e, total surrender.
