From Ramayana Young Rama and Lakshmana fighting the demons, Vaali Vadham, Hanuman meeting Sita in Srilanka and more are seen.

Srinivasaperumal Ambur is a relatively new temple built and consecrated in 1824. The Idol which was found elsewhere in a river bed was brought and installed here, indicating the idol could be much older and from an old temple. The Rajagopuram was constructed in 1966.


The lord is said to have appeared in the dream of a devotee and indicated his presence in a riverbed in a village called Karukkambadi near Tirupati. The devotee is then believed to have recovered the idol and brought it here. Sage Kannuva is said to have worshiped and seen the divine vision of the Lord here at Srinivasaperumal Ambur.
