Vinobha Mandir is actually an ashram that is dedicated to Vinobha Bhave, the man who ushered in the Bhoodan Movement in India. The ashram is now very significant from the religious point of view and is therefore, referred to as a temple. The temple holds plenty of importance for the people of Pochampally as this was the place where the historical Bhoodan movement was launched.

Inside the temple are the statues of Acharya Vinobha Bhave and of Shri Vedire Ramchendra Reddy, the man who was the first to donate his land to the poor. He magnanimously gave way 250 acres of his land to the people of Pochampally. The temple also houses the memoirs of Acharya Vinobha Bhave and tourists can go through them as they have been put on display.

Outside the temple is the Bhoodan Stupam, a symbol of the movement that ushered in a new era into the country.
