Impressive enough from the outside. To go inside requires storage of cameras and mobile phones (which aren't allowed inside) and plenty of patience for the long queue to get inside. Probably best to go during the week to avoid the crowds.

It is just near by Ross Hill Church. You gotta go through a very dirty road to reach here. It is just near by the Vizag Harbor.

This shrine is the original NARSIMHA temple and is very famous after tirupati balaji. The hilly terrain to reach the temple is really a scenic beauty and loved by nature lovers

the oldest temple in vizag...This temple is worth a visit though it is in the old town of vizag and near the harbour. Lord venkateswara blesses everyone who visits the temple. Govinda Govinda. It is now high time the people of vizag should visit the temple in large numbers and revive the glory of this temple
