Siddi Vinayaka Swamy Temple

Siddi Vinayaka Swamy Temple is a highly revered shrine dedicated to Shri Siddi Vinayaka Swamy (Lord Ganesh), on the banks of Godavari River, in Konaseema of East Godavari District. It is believed that the black stone idol of the presiding deity was consecrated by Veda Vyasa. It is installed in a sitting posture on the south side of the temple.

The two entrances, on the southern and eastern sides, of the temple are known as Simha Dwaras. Devotees enter the temple through the eastern entrance. The temple is also known as Panchayatana Kshetram since the Sri Kalabairawa Swamy, Sri Visweswara Swamy, Sri Annapoorna, Sridevi and Bhoodevi Kesava Swamy temples are located in the same premises.

Ganesh Chaturthi, celebrated here amidst much pomp and splendor, draws a large number of devotees from far and near. Other main festivals celebrated here are the Mahashivaratri, Kartikai and Siddi Chouti Ekadesi. Nearest major town is Inavalli. The temple is 1 km from Mukteswaram and is about 11 km from Amalapuram. Nearest railway station is at Rajahmundry, 70 km away from the temple.
