Sri Kanaka Mahalakshmi Ammavari Temple is one of the prominent shrines in Visakhapatnam
. Kanaka Mahalakshmi Ammavaru is the presiding deity here.
It is believed that the idol of the deity was taken out from a well nearby. Uniqueness is that the pujas are performed to the goddess by the devotees directly without any priest. The temple is thronged by a large number of devotees every day, particularly on Thursdays. A major draw is Margasira Masa Festival celebrated here annually.
Sri Kanaka Mahalakshmi Temple is only two kilometers away from Visakhapatnam Junction Railway Station.
