The most interesting thing is that this temple is built right beside a church and a mosque. It is a view especially during the evenings. The pleasantness of the place surprises you.

Located in the old town area near a mosque and Ross Hill church. The three shrines are considered sacred by the locals as it is believed to protect the city from the sea storms. It offers a good panoramic view of the bay below.

Venkateswara swamy temple, Port area. Go straight to the last bus stop in Old city (OLD POST OFFICE). Take an autorickshaw or walk for 15 minutes. You will find one hill divided into two with an approach road and a railway track. Takes 200 steps to climb and have darshan of Lord Venkateswara of my lovely Vizag. Must to view... More

Atop a good sized hill, one must climb to receive the priests' blessings. Lovely view of the canal and shipping zone, cargo, naval ships and huge coal shipping production. Temple was said to be 1000 years old, a nice place to stop.

Visit to the temple is a must and go in morning and evening since temple is closed during after noon. spend time at temple since the view from the temple of the port is breath taking. we were lucky to see a submarine being pulled in, brilliant!
