Venugopalaswamy Thally is an ancient east facing temple. The main sanctum is dilapidated and is declared unsafe. The goddess shrine is on the right as you face the main sanctum. At the right as you enter is a small shrine for a slab carved Anjaneya who is facing south. At the entrance to main sanctum on either side are Ganesha and Anjaneya in small niches. The locals are building new sanctums for the main deities right behind the existing old structures since permission was not granted to demolish them. The temple has an old temple car which is kept east of the temple across the road.
