  • Sri Vidya Saraswati temple
  • Lord Shanishwara Temple
  • Lord Shiva Temple
  • Few Vishnava Temples now completely damaged without any mola vigrahas in it.

This temple complex was the brain child of Sri Yayavaram Chandra Shekar Sharma scholared follower of goddesses Saraswathi astrologer and a vastu expert. In 1998 the building process for the above temple was initiated under the group who called themselves as Satya patam seva samithi. This committee researched and selected the hillock of Vargal, which is home to a 400 years old Shambu Deva Temple. This temple is 2 feet below the ground level and one has to pass crawling of the ground for few feets to reach the main Shiva lingam.

Sri Saraswathi Songs

Goddess Saraswati is the goddess of arts, music, knowledge, and wisdom. Saraswati is considered as the divine consort of Lord Brahma, the Creator of the universe as per the Hindu Religion. Saraswati is regarded as the destroyer of chaos and confusion. Slokas on Saraswati form the part of prayers offered to the goddess. Saraswati Slokas/ Shlokas are as follows:

"Ya Devi Stuyate Nithyam Vibhuhairvedaparagaih |
Same Vasatu Jihvagre Brahmarupa Saraswati" ||

Meaning: Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, is praised by the intelligent who have mastered the Shastra (scriptures). She is the wife of the Creator. May she live on my tongue.

"Shrii Saraswatii Namahstubhyam Varade Kaama Ruupini |
Twaam Aham Praarthane Devii Vidyaadaanam Cha Dehi Me" ||

Meaning: I bow to Goddess Saraswati, who fulfills the wishes of the devotees. I pray her to enlighten me with knowledge.

"Sarasvathi Namastubhyam, Varade Kaamaroopini |
Vidyaarambham Karishyaami, Siddhir Bhavatu Mey Sada" ||

Meaning: Saraswati is the provider of boons and the one, who grants all our desires. As I begin my studies, I bow to the Goddess to help me in making it fruitful and make me successful in all my efforts.

Yaa Kundendu tushaara haara-dhavalaa, Yaa shubhra-vastra'avritaa
Yaa veena-vara-danda-manditakara, Yaa shweta padma'asana
Yaa brahma'achyuta shankara prabhritibhir Devai-sadaa Vanditaa
Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavatee Nihshesha jaadya'apahaa.
Shuklaam Brahmavichaara Saara paramaam Aadhyaam Jagadvyapinim,
Veena Pustaka Dhaarineem Abhayadaam Jaadya'andhakaara'apahaam
Haste Sphaatika Maalikam Vidadhateem
Padmasane Sansthitaam
Vande taam Parmeshwareem Bhagavateem Buddhipradaam Shardam.
