The Sri Lakshmi Venkataramanaswamy temple conforms to south Indian temple architecture. Apart from the usual gopura (tower) and hall, it features a tall flagstaff called Garuda Khamba and a chariot. The annual Brahmotsavam is celebrated in a grand manner for 12 days.
The temple rites start in early morning with the recital of the Sri Venkateswara Suprabhatam, a devotional song. According to common belief, a devotee uttering this prayer every morning will be blessed with prosperity by the lord.
