Yaaganti Caves

This is the temple of Lord Siva swami along with his wife, Goddess Parvati Devi.

There are caves at YAGANTI and are Agastya cave, Venkateswara cave and Veera Brahmam caves .............

Potuluri Veera Brahmam gaaru has written his monumental work, kalagnanam in this cave only.

Agastya Cave

This is the cave where Agastya performed the Penance for Lord Shiva. One can enter the guha by climbing 120 steep steps. Devi Idol is installed and worshiped here.

Venkateswara Cave

The damaged idol of Lord Venkateswara is present in this cave. Compared to Agastya guha it is easy to climb though the steps are steep. According to the story of this Venkateswara idol first lord Venkateswara was present in this cave before Tirupati. But as the idol is damaged near the foot,it could not be worshipped. As per Veera Brahmam Kala Gynanam, whenever in Tirupati people cannot worship god,then this place will stand as an alternative instead of Tirupati. This temple has very beautiful scenic locations around it.

Veera Brahmam Cave

This is the cave, where Vishwakarma Brahmin saint Sree Potuluri Veera Brahmam wrote some of his "Kala Gyaanam" (Prophecy). The height of the cave is less and one needs to bend into half to enter it.
