Nestled in one of the busiest areas of the city, Sree Sampath Vinayagar Temple is one of the popular temples in Visakhapatnam that offers holy and divine vibes to the devotees of the Lord Ganesha. A must-visit tourist attraction on your Vizag tour, this temple is dedicated to the Hindu community and has a presiding deity of Lord Vinayaka, which is made up of black marble.

Widely known for its significance, Sree Sampath Vinayagar Temple is a place where you can see several people performing all the rituals for their new vehicle before they start using it. Even students come to this temple to score well during the annual examinations. Such is the belief among the citizens over there. Unlike other temples, this temple doesn’t boast of great architecture but is still visited by more than 2 million devotees every year.

Tourists who are in Visakhapatnam for a day or two should take some time off for this holiest shrine at least once for sure. It is generally said that Lord Ganesha fulfils the wishes of all those who worship the deity with full faith and desire. The temple also hosts a grand celebration of the Ganesh Chaturthi festival every year, which gives another reason for people to flock to this place. Other festivals such as Ugadi and Dussehra are also celebrated with great fervor at the temple.

History of Sree Sampath Vinayagar Temple, Visakhapatnam

Laid its foundation in 1962, Sree Sampath Vinayagar Temple was built by the owners of S.G. Sambandan & Co. who used their funds to construct this temple. The sole purpose behind the formation of this temple was to have a place where they can offer their prayers and get rid of the Vaastu Dosha at any time of the day.

Soon, after that, the local fishermen started visiting this temple on an everyday basis to seek blessings for the wellness of their business before going to the market. While doing so, they observed a few miracles in their lives and hence, continued performing deep aradhana for the betterment of their future. Five years later, Sri Chandrasekharan Saraswati renovated this shrine and placed the presiding deity with his own hands.

However, the temple gained its recognition among the people in the year 1971 when Admiral Krishnan, who was working as an in charge of Eastern Naval Command at that time, broke 1001 coconuts in front of “Ganapathi” to save the city from Pakistani attack. After a few days, when the Pakistani submarine Ghazi tried attacking Vizag, it sank off the sea and people residing there had a sign of relief. Since then, devotees from all around the world visit this temple to get their wishes fulfilled.
