One night Lord Srinivasa appeared in his dream and told him that his idol was inside a lake at Tirukanagkudi, (now situated in Triunelveli district) and asked him to bring the idol and construct and temple in Anathapuri.
Sree Venkatraman Iyengar followed the instructions given by lord, bought the idol from the lake and built the temple in the year 1898. After the construction of the temple he was graced with a Son.
From that time onwards the temple is looked after by the following generation of Sree Venkataraman Iyengar and now it is almost a decade.
