Tirumala Tourist Spots - Sri Vari Padam and Chakra Teertham

Other places of tourist interest in Tirumala are:

Srivari Padam:Just about 5 kms from the main temple of Lord Venkateshwara/Balaji in Tirumala is Srivari Paadam. .Presently there are no bus services to the places and can be accessed with the help of private vehicles or jeeps for hire. It is believed that the Lord descended on the earth at this place and decided on the place where the temple is presently situated. The Lord's feet are worshiped at this point on the hill.

 Chakra Theertham is also a famous pond in Tirumala, which is located next to Silathoranam.This place houses a Swayambu Lingam. It is believed that when Lord Brahma observed grief at this site, Lord Vishnu plunged his Sudarshana Chakra for cleansing it.The Sudarshana Chakra then fell into a place, which later came to be known as Chakra Theertham. This pond is known for cleanse bathers of sins and lead them to the lotus feet of Lord Vishnu.

  2. I haven't been that side; didn't know the place was so naturally blessed.
    I particularly like the rocks and the Sri Chakra Theertham. And the place looks quite unspoilt, too. Thank you for the sights, Ram.

  7. Ram,
    The Sri Vari Padam is beautiful.
    The terrain looks quite rugged.
    I wonder how people travelled to the temple or around these parts when there were no motorized vehicles. I wonder...
    Have a Beautiful Day!
    Peace :)
