Annadanam Akhila Bharateeya Brahmana Karivena Nityannadana Satram is a charitable organisation which serves the cause of devotees visiting prominent Hindu places of worship. It is operated in Karivena, a village of Kurnool District of Andhra Pradesh, India.

In ancient times, pilgrims journeying to the temple of Sri Sailam had no mode of transport other than walking. A group of Brahmins would come forward to serve the pilgrims on their journey by offering amenities such as water, food, and medication. In modern times, this tradition of hospitality to pilgrims continues in more than one place of worship.

Other satrams operate at Alampur, Bhadrachalam, Mahanandi, Rameswaram, Shirdi, Sri Sailam, Tirupati, Varanasi, and Vijayawada.
