Kalyana Mandapam (Telugu: కళ్యాణ మండపం) is a 1971 Telugu-language film starring Sobhan Babu, Kanchana, Kongara Jaggaiah, Anjali, Gummadi and others. The film was distributed by Anjali Pictures and directed by V. Madhusudhan Rao.

This movie is a remake of the national award winning Kannada film Gejje Pooje directed by Puttanna Kanagal in 1969.

This film deals with the Devadasi tradition prevalent in Zamindari Andhra culture and deals with the dream of a young Devadasi girl wanting to get married to her childhood lover. But circumstances push her into being a temple dancer towards the end of the movie, culminating in her death. Kanchana plays the role of the Devadasi girl and gives a stunning performance. Viewers empathise with the character throughout.

Music is by P. Adinarayana Rao. Renditions by S.P. Balasubramaniam and P. Susheela of Pilichevaruntey palikenu nenu, Saregama padanisa, Chukkalu paade subha manthram are memorable.
