The pilgrims who come to Srisailam first visit the Sakshi Ganapathi Devasthanam before they make their way to the Srisailam Temple. Even though smaller than other temples seen around the town, the Ganapati temple enchants its visitors by its lush-green natural surroundings, spiritual atmosphere and the black idol of Lord Ganesh that is placed in the shrine. The temple is barely crowded and you can take your time observing the area before making your way through the hills to Sraisailam.

It is believed that the temple is named ‘Sakshi’ (which translates to ‘witness’) owing to the idea that Ganesha at this temple keeps evidence of your visit to Srisailam. Take some time to say a humble prayer to Lord Ganesh (the God of happiness) or simply spend a few moments here in meditation.
