At a distance of 18 km from Tirupati & 40 km from Tirumala Tirupati Balaji Temple, the Prasanna Venkateswara Swami Temple is located at Appalayagunta.

The idols of Goddess Padmavathi and Sri Andal are also seen in this ancient temple. The temple was constructed by the Rajas of Karvetinagar. The temple also houses a shrine for Anjaneya. The imposing mammoth image of the wind-god is worshipped by devotees for relief from 'Chronic Diseases'. The presiding deity in this temple, unlike in the main temple, is in the Abhaya Hastha pose.

The annual Brahmotsavams and Teppotsavam are celebrated in a grand manner.
