Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Temple of Anakapalle is a locally very famous Hilltop temple in the surroundings of Anakapalle town of Visakhapatnam city. It is blessed with beautiful sceneries from the temple. A devotee can see the completely Anakapalle beautiful area from this temple. It is considered to be the branch of Annavaram Satyanarayana temple.

This temple is situated over the top of the hill. So all the devotees and visitors have to climb all the steps on foot. Temple's way steps are very quiet steep and very tiresome. There is another way also for the motor vehicles but only for two-wheelers. This road is also not good and needs to be maintained.

Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Temple of Anakapallle has considered very sacred and famous so many functions or marriages of local peoples take place inside the temple. Of course, as the temple is very remote and difficult for everyone to climb over the hill to reach the temple so the visitors on regular days would be very few.

On weekends, holidays, and Sundays, there would be more visitors than on normal days. There would be only one priest that would be busy in the temple regular activities and worship of God Swaminarayan.
