History of this Temple:
Sage Mandavya used to penance here. This temple is also called as 'Paschima Tirupati', an alternate place to Tirupati. During the period of Tippu Sultan, mughals started destroying many hindu temples.To save this temple,they called Venkateshwara as Ranganatha, as Tippu Sultan was faithful to his god Ranganatha Swamy at Srirangapattana. One more interesting idol inside is Beleyo Ranga(Growing Ranga) which is a small idol of Ranganatha in reclining position.
