Andhra Pradesh is adorned with many temples of Lord Venkateshwara, the most popular being Tirupati. "Dwaraka Tirumala" or "Chinna Tiruapti" is yet another prominent temple of Lord Venkateshwara situated near Eluru, the head quarters of West Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh.

Dwaraka Tirumala holds a prominent place among the temples of Andhra Pradesh from a very long time. There are two temples in this place - one that of Lord Venkateshwara and another of Mallikarjuna (Lord Shiva) situated on a hillock. This hillock resembles Anantha, the divine serpent and it is said that Anantha is blessed to bears Lord Shiva on his hood (as the temple is on the hillock) and Lord Venkateshwara on his tail (as the temple is down the hillock). This amazing fact speaks volumes about the harmony between Saivism and Vaishnavism. Both the temples - Mallikarjuna Temple andVenkateshwara Temple hold equal prominence but the temple of Lord Venkateshwara receives more limelight.

Architecture of the Temple

The temple has been renovated several times. The splendid structures like Vimana, Mantapa, Gopura and Prakara are accredited to be made by Dharma Appa Raoa (1762-1827). Various golden ornaments and silver vahanas were gifted by Rani Chinnamma Rao (1877-1902) of Mylavaram. The structure of the temple is a magnum opus of South Indian architecture. 

The main Rajgopuram (spire) comprises five storeys and faces the southern direction. The other three 'gopurams' are embracing the three other sides of the temple. The Vimana is made out in the Nagara style. The old Mukhamantapa is renovated and extended to go well with the contemporary requirements. The entire spacious complex has been tiled with sandstone. A variety of trees adores the site with their soothing appearance.
