The Jamalapuram Temple is located at a distance of 124 km from the main city of Khammam. The temple is famously known as Khammam Chinna Tirupati Temple as well. Vijayanagara King, Emperor Sri Krishna Devaraya is credited with the construction of the temple many centuries ago. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Venkateswara. The temple has a lot of religious significance for the Hindus since it is believed to be at least 1000 years old.

The temple is visited by many devotees of the Lord. The temple is especially bustling with activity during Saturdays when a special pooja or prayer is done by the priests of the temple. Many people believe that praying at the temple is supposed to fulfill your wishes. Very close to the temple lies the Suci Guta, a hill associated with Jabali Maharishi. It is believed that the Maharishi performed a vigorous penance here, and Lord Venkateswara, impressed with the penance, visited the Maharishi and blessed him.
