The celebrated temple of Sri Venkatesvara stands on a hill named Venkatadri which looks like a depression surrounded by high hills on all sides. The entire temple is surrounded by a prakara built of large blocks of stone riveted into each other. The walls are 414 feet East-West and 263 feet North-South. There is only one entrance in the east surrounded by a gopura, known as the Padikavali gopuram. The base of the gopuram seems to have been in existence even by the commencement of the 13th century A.D. and the superstructure is a later date (1-84).
