Sree Rama temple- Ancient and venerable
Jan 2021
The Sree Rama temple is ancient. The architecture is beautiful. The main deities of Lord Ram with Sita and Lakshmana evoke devotion. There is a separate temple for Anjaneya opposite the temple which is a must see. The temple premises is neat and clean with adequate parking space. Tirumala Tirupathi devasthanam and Archaeological Society of India are doing a good job of maintaining the temple.

Ancient Ram temple- Not to be missed.
Aug 2021
Ancient temple with beautiful architecture. The Gopuram is exquisite. The main deity of Lord Ram with Sita and Lakshmana is carved in a single stone. It is believed to have been consecrated by Jambawan. The priest explained that since Jambawan installed the statue before Anjaneya met Rama, Anjaneya does't find a place near Rama. Probavly this is the only Ram temple where Anjaneya is not seen at the feet of Rama.
There is a separate deity od Anjaneya installed by the side The temple is atleast thousand years old. Has a majestic entrance with a beautiful view.
Very neat and clean. Has ample parking space for cars. There is also a toilet for visitors. Maintained by Tirupathi devasthanam as well as Archaeological Society of India.

Visit to Sri Kodanda Ramasamy Temple, Vontimitta
Feb 2020
Those who are going by train my trip experience is useful. I traveled by Chennai to Dadar Express at morning 6.45 am (Chennai Egmore) and reached Razampet at 10.30 a.m. Took a share auto from Razampet Railway Station to Main Bus stand. From there boarded Kadapa Bus. Buses to Kadapa is available frequently. Razampet to Kadappa Bus fare is Rs.30/- and it took around 45 minutes to reach the Temple. The temple is situated on the Main Road. Had very good Dharshan at temple. Not much rush was there. Sri Anjaneya Temple is situated separately opposite to the main temple. Free lunch is available outside and it is maintained by trust.

After Dharshan again boarded bus to Razampet Railway station and reached there around 2.30 pm. Boarded Dadar Chennai Express at 3.00 p.m. and reached Chennai on the same day.Those who want to go by train this is the best method.

Ancient temple, Serene place, Wonderful architecture, cultural importance
Dec 2019 • Family
This temple is in Vontimitta or Ekashilapuram. Stunning stone architecture is visible everywhere. Entirely made of stone. Believed to be atleast 1000 years old. From entrance tower base , entrance doors, to pillars inside the temple is filled with detailed artwork .
Main idol is of Rama Sita and Lakshmana almost life-size. This idol of the trio is said to have been carved out of single rock (monolith) and consecrated by Jambavan. This portrays time before hanuman and rama had met so in this temple, unusually you won't see hanuman with rama sita laskhmana.
This is pronounced protected monument by ASI. A temple worth visiting for a good experience and ambience when returning from andhra Pradesh via kadapa to chennai . Our visit was on return from ahobilam temples.
