The temples take your breath away so much work goes into building them and the carvings are hand made. Lots of gold to be seen When you go to the temple like most places of worship be prepared for the cows walking around and mingling among the crowds

Lord Srikanteshwara is the presiding deity of Nanjangudu. The place is of historical as well as religious significance. The architecture of the temple is exquisite and requires special mention. Kapila river running through the town adds to the serenity of the place. Dasoha program of the temple provides delicious food for the tourists.

If you have the time, this temple should not be missed. The architecture itself is a treat to your eyes, besides well maintained temple complex inside. There is a huge Shiva statue at a distance of 100 meters from this temple. Places is full of beggars and you have to be careful about it.
