The Bhoomi pooja of the temple was held on the 26th of April,2001 by Sri Tripurananda Swamy. The idols have been made by the famous sculptor Ganapathi Sthapathy which have been brought all the way from Kanchipuram. The temple's magnificent architecture was designed and executed by Mr.M.Shankar(B.Arch).
After 22 months of the Bhoomi pooja this holy place of Lord Venkateshwara, Godess Padmavathi and Andalu Devi, Lord Hanuman, Lord Ganesh and Sri Vasavi Kanyaka Parmeshwari took its enormous shape and came into exsistence on the 19th of February 2003 when Sri Sri Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamiji completed the prathishta of the idols with the blessings of Sri Sri Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji. The prathishta was completed after a week long poojas which were performed by Late Sri Mudumbai Ramanujacharya Swamiji and Late Sri Chandramouli Guruswamiji as per the divine religious rites of Aagaman Shastram, Pancharatra.

Speaking about the architectural magnificence of the structure,it is vast and spread over an area of 5acres. RATNALAYAM stands on the Rajiv Gandhi Highway, Aliabad which is 25kms from secunderabad.
Every month the Abhishekam and Kalyanam of Lord Venkateshwara is held on the Shravana Nakshatram,Abhishekam of Abhaya Ganapathi on Shuddha Chavithi, Anjaneya Swamy on Purva Bhadra and Vasavi Kanyaka Parmeshwari on Pournami and Satyanarayana Vratham on the same day.
Every year the temple has been celebrating its Brahmotsavams grandly. RATNALAYAM provides an opportunity to people who cannot go to Tirumala to worship Lord Venkateshwara during the Brahmotsavams and help them realize this dream of theirs, to witness the poojas and participate in them as well because they are held at the same time as in Tirumala.It is a lifetime experience.
In this world of materialistic life, the human thought and fruitful concept of RATNALAYAM is a splendid torch,which we, as a family have got to hold and make it glow as brightly as possible. We thank all the devotees for their cooperation and devotion in making this temple a clean and sacred place of worship.
