Achyutraya Temple (Tiruvengalanatha Temple Travel)

A perfect example of advanced form of Vijayanagara style of architecture, Achyutraya temple is sanctified nearly 500 years back. Constructed during the period of Achyutaraya, it has the main deity as Tiruvengalanatha, a variant form of Lord Shiva.

The temple is facing to the north and has prakaras. The external prakara has a superior gopura on the northern side while the internal prakara has three gopuras on the other three directions. Interiors of the prakara walls are supported by many pillars. The huge kalyana mantapas in the west of the gopuras are in a decaying state. Facing the northern direction is a bazaar, known as Achyutapete.
