Swami Pushkarini

Swami Pushkarini

Lord Sri Maha Vishnu, having left his abode Vaikuntha settled on the southern side of Swami Pushkarini, in the form of Sri Venkateswara along with his beloved Divine Spouse Goddess Ramaa Devi enjoying the serenity of its surroundings.

One among the twenty divine names of the Sri Venkatadri is 'Tirthadri' i.e. the abode of sacred water places. As per the description in various Puranas like Brahma Purana, Brahmanda Purana, Padma Purana, Varaha Purana and other Puranas there are 1008 major Tirthas on the hill of this Tirumala out of which 108 have divine power of fulfilling the desires of Sri Venkateswara’s devotees

A bath in Swami Pushkarini is a merit bestowed on those who have done a lot of good in previous births. This provides salvation, moksha, to the devotee. The donation of Salagrama stone and a cow is recommended at this thirtha.

Temple Timings: Every day from 5:30 AM to 12 PM and 5 PM to 9 PM.

Special Abhishekam : Special abhishekam is performed every year, to the presiding deity in the holy month of Shravana, with the advent of the Shravana star on the auspicious occasion of Varaha Jayanthi.
