This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. This is one of the 108 Divya Deshams of Vishnu Bhaktas. It is said to be second Tirupathi. Those who cannot visit Lord Venkatesha at Tirumala can visit this temple and get blessings of Lord Uppiliappan.

The deity is very beautiful and tall. But this temple is very commercial. Even just for ashirvadham they are charging and the environment is not as clean as it should be.
