Annamacharya Jayanti is the birth anniversary of the saint poet Annamayya who composed and sung tens of thousands of sankeerthanas on Lord Sri Venkateswara. In 2022, Annamacharya Jayanti date is May 16. It is celebrated on Vaishakha Pournami day, full moon day in Vaishakha masam.
Annamayya is said to have composed as many as 32,000 sankeertanas in Telugu (songs) on the praise of lord Venkateswara of which only about 12,000 are available today.
He is believed to have been the avatar of Nandaka, the sword of Vishnu. He is widely regarded as the Andhra Pada kavitā Pitāmaha (Grandfather of Telugu song-writing).
