TIRUMALA TIRUPATI PLACES

Sri Venkateswara Swami (Lord Balaji) Temple

The ancient and sacred temple of Sri Venkateshwara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatachala (Venkata Hill) of the Tirupati Hill, Picturesquely situated on the top of the hills, and lies on the southern banks of Sri Swami Pushkarini. The sanctum sanctorum which houses the awe-inspiring idol of the Lord of the Seven Hills is situated in the main temple complex of Tirumala. Sastras, Puranas, Sthala Mahatmyarns, and Alwar hymns, unequivo cally declare that in the Kali Yuga one can attain mukti only through worshipping this Venkata Nayaka or Lord Venkateswara. To illustrate that Venkatadri is unique in its sacredness it is enough to point out that Sri Ramanuja, the great Sri Vaishnava Acharya, ascended Tirumala on his knees as he thought it sacrilegious to climb on foot the Hills on which the Lord rested.

‘Sri Venkatachala Mahatrnyam’ contains Puranic lores from the twelve Mahapuranas. The puranic legends say that after the Pralaya  kalpa preceding the great Deluge, the Supreme Being Maha Vishnu, revealed Himself in the form of a White Boar, Sweta Varaha, rescued the earth and recreated it and having re-established the universe, He decided to stay on the earth for some time to protect the good and destroy the evil. Thus God Vishnu revealed Himself earlier. in the previous incarnation as Varahaswami on the bank of the Varaha Tirumala i.e. northern portion of Pushkarini at Tirumala. This manifestation as the White Boar is enshrined in the Adi Varahaswami temple on the north western bank ofthe Pushkarini at Tirumala_ This temple is believed to be older than the temple of Lord Venkateswara and claims precedence in worship and Nivedana.

All the great dynasties of the southern peninsula had paid their tribute to this ancient shrine. The Pailavas of Kancheepuram (9th century A.D,), Cholas, Pandyas and the kings, chiefs of \/iiayanagar (14th – 15th Century) were ardent ‘devotees of Lord \/enkateswara and they vied with each other in endowing the temple with rich offerings and benefactions, lt was during the Viayanagar  period the glory of  Tirumala reached its pinnacle. The statues of Sri Krishna Devaraya, the illustrious king of the Vijayanagara empire and his consorts were installed in the temple at the portals, in his own life-time and they can be seen even today. There are also statues of Achyuta Raya and Venltatapati Raya, Sri Krishna Deva Raya visited the sacred shrine seven times with his consorts during his reign.

Even after the decline of the Vijayanagar dynasty, inspite of the  cholas and anarchy that prevailed in the region, the nobles and chieftains from all parts of the country continued paying their homage and gifts to the temple. The Maratta general, Raghoji Bhonsle, visited the temple and set up a permanent endowment for the conduct of worship in the temple, He also presented valuable jewels to the Deity, including the great emerald which is still preserved in a box named after him. Among the later rulers who have endowed large benefactions are the rulers of Mysore and Gadwal.

 1. Bhoga Srinivasa-The Kautuka Bera:

This idol is made of silver and was consecrated by the donor; the Pallava queen, Samavai in 966 AD. The donor‘s consecration is recorded in an epigraph on the northern  wall of the temple prakaram which is perhaps the earliest inscription in the temple, This mentions that Queen Samavai also called as Kadavan-Perundevi and queen of Sakti-Vitankan arranged in the 14th  regnal year of her lord and king Koppatra-Mahendra-Panmar for a daily offering of 4 nali of tiruvamudu, (cooked rice) and a perpetual lamp, (nandavilakku) for tirumanjanam on the two ayana-sankrantis and the two Vishu sariltrantis, and for celebrating the purattasi festival commencing from the two days before the main festival and to conduct the festival for nine days and also installed in the Tiruvilankoyil (by which name the garbha griha of the temple was then known), this idol after  performing special worship of the God of the sacred  Venkata Hill. She also presented gold ornaments worth 47 kalanjus. Lands were also endowed to the new Kautuka Bhera, named Manavalapperumal and  the managers of the temple (called as madapatyan)    were enjoined to conduct the services and the  sabhaiyar were ordered to protect the endowed lands  from being taxed.

This idol is a true copy of the Dhruva Bera except  that the Sanka and Chakra are permanently fixed in    the case of Bhoga Srinivasa. On the pitham and  below the feet of the Kautuka Bera, is an Yantra, as   if two equilateral triangles are symmetrically   interplaced one being an invert of the other. It is possible that such an Yantram might have existed originally in the idol of the Lord also. Nammalvar gives in one of his verses (3-4-4) a beautiful description of the feet of the Dhruva Bera which states that the feet of Tiruvengadamudayan has a figure representing radiating arms. This might possibly represent the Shadgunya Yantra  Nammalvar’s song was composed about two centuries earlier than the installation of the Vanavalapperumal. The yantra of this type would perhaps represent the six gunas of para and vyuha which are recognized by the Vaikhanasa Agama also.

The Bhoga Srinivasa gets abhisheka every morning, accompanied by mantras, unlike the Dhruva Bera to which abhishekam is performed only  on Fridays.At night this Deity is put to bed in paryankasana. During the daily Ekanta seva this idol is placed in a silver cradle in the Sayana mandapa and milk, etc., are offered to this Lord to the accompaniment of music and songs composed by the Tallapaka poets. Sandalwood paste is also applied to Him every night. One peculiarity of this service in this temple is that the Ekanta Seva is performed to the idol of Manavalapperumal for all months of the year, except one, viz., the Dhanurmasa, when the Ekanta Seva is done for the Krishna idol.

This idol was intimately connected with the main idol of the Dhruva Murti by means of a silk cord at the time of installation. A gold link and a silk cord is still attached to this idol when he is brought outside the Sanctum Sanctorum for deputizing the Dhruva Murti on festive occasions.

2. Ugra Srinivasa or Snapana Murti:

This idol was once originally called as Venkatatturaivar and stands for the anger aspect of the Lord since he is also called Ugra Srinivasa. Apart from the Dhruva Sera, this is perhaps the earliest idol of the temple and in all probability this was used as the processional idol in the very early days. This is about 18″ high and stands on a-pedestal of about?” height. The chakra of this image is in a slightly titled condition and could perhaps be called the prayoga chakra. Sridevi and Shudevi both as standing figures are also seen. The Tamil synonym Venkatatturaivar shows that He was the deity of the temple before Shoga Srinivasa was consecrated. There are now three occasions of which Ugra Srinivasa alone figures viz., Uttana Ekadasi, Mukkoti Dvadasl and Dvadasaradhana. Legends have it that the rays of the sun should not touch this idol, and if they do, it would bring incalculable harm to the world.

 

3. Koluvu Srinivasa or Bali Sera:

Every day after the morning Tomalaseva, a darbar called Koluvu is held in the Tirumamani mantapam when the Deity is brought and is seated in a silver chair with a gold umbrella above him. This idol officiates for the main idol during this function. Hence his name is Koluvu Srinivasa. He is akin to the guardian deity and supervises the temple household, and keeps himself posted with all the affairs and revenues of the te01ple. The panchangam or the calendar of the day is also read out before him every day. It is also here that the matradanam of rice, the customary share of the archakas, is made. Though He is known as Bali Sera, he has  never been known to have been taken out and offered Bali after the daily puja is over.

 

4. Sri Malayappan or Utsava Murti

The first mention of this Deity under the name Ma1ai Kuniya Ninra Perumal  is found in an  epigraph about the year 1339 A.D. The idol is in a standing pose and is a replica of the Dhruva Bera. The two upper arms hold the Sankha and Chakra, the lower right arm is in the Varada Hasta pose and the left arm in Katyavalambita poss. This image has a very rich treasury of precious gems and jewels made of platinum and gold.

 

There is a legend that on one occasion during the Brahmotsava, a procession was going round the streets, when a fire broke out in the village which destroyed the houses, “The  archakas and the devotees did not know how this disaster happened. When sincere prayers we  offered, God spoke through a man, and stated that the times have changed, and that the old, lJgra Srinivasa who was the then Utsava murti should no longer be used as processional deity, and that  in the glades of the mountain another Murti  Would be found, and only he should be used for this purpose. It is because of this anger, that the old Murti is perhaps known as Ugramurti. Tradition is that the new Murti with his consorts, was found at a place where the hill bowed   very low, and hence he was called as ‘Malai Kuniya  Ninra Perumal.’ This long name got shortened into Malayappan in course of time. The glade where he is said to have been found is still known as Malayyappan Konai.

In the order of preference the idols that represents the Druva Bera are Bhoga Srinivasa, Malayappa and his two consorts, Ugra Srinivasa and Koluvu Srinivasa. In the agamic terminology they would stand for Kautuka, Utsava, Snapana and Bali Sera. According to the agamic rules, the Kautuka Sera should be consecrated direct from the Druvabera and the Utsava Bera from  Kautuka and similarity in that order, the Snapana and Bali Berams. The inscriptions in the temple, however do not mention Malayappa as Utsava Bera, nor the Bhoga Srinivasa as Kautuka Bera.

The idol of Lord Malayappa is about three feet height and stands on a lotus pedestal on a platform about ’14” height. To right is the idol of Sri devi about 30″ height, her pedestal being about  4″. This is a pancha-Ioha idol. Her left hand is in the Kataka hasta pose, the right hand hanging loosely and the fingers held in the Gajakarna pose. Bhudevi is in standing pose, The only difference between her and Sridevi is that it is her right hand that is in the Kataka hasta pose and left in the Gajakarna mudra.

In one inscription found in the north wall of the Varadarajaswamy Temple, there is a reference to the 19th regnal year of Tribhuvana Chakravari Sriranganatha Yadavaraya in which mention is made of Malai Kuniyaninra Perumal and his Nachchimar. Hence the earliest epigraphical reference about this is of 1339 AD.

5. Sri Krishna idol:

In the Garbha griha there is a very beautiful idol of Lord Krishna in the navanitha nritya pose along with his consort Rukmini. The Lord is shown as a dancing child on his left foot on a lotus pedestal, the leg gracefully bent at the knee and not resting on tile pedestal. The right hand holds butter while the left is stretched out gracefully in a dancing pose.

The earliest inscriptional reference to this idol is of 1100 A.D. Other inscriptions refer to offerings made to Krishna on Sri Jayanti Day and also during the several Brahmotsavams. It is this idol that receives Ekanta Seva at night in the temple during the Dhanurmasa.

Neither the idol of Sri Krishna nor of Sri Rama (called as Raghunatha) enjoy daily puja. They only share in the nityarchana of Sri Venkateswara, Even the naivedyam intended for Sri Rama or Sri Krishna are first offered to Lord Venkateswara only. But in asthanas and processions etc., outside the Garbha griha this particular idol gets offerings direct. This procedure is distinctly mentioned in the epigraphs as in a Vijayanagara I nscription dated 12-8-1486 (142-G.T.)

 

6. Idols of Sri Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Sugreeva:

Four copper idols of Sri Rama (known as Sri Raghunatha), Sita, Sugriva and Lakshmana find place in  the Sanctum Sanctorum. These idols. are not referred to in any inscriptions before 1476A.D. Most  probably  when the  present Ramarmedai  was converted into a room by about 1245 A. D., these Idiol s must have been placed there from which fact this.Place derives its name of Ramarmedai. One school of thought in that Ramanuja might have installed these in the temple.

The idol of Sri Ram is in the madhyama tala and tribhanga pose, the left arm raised to hold the bow and the right gracefully sloping downwards as if to hold the arrow. The idol is a standing or stanaka one, and has a kiritam or crown on it. Goddess Sita is to the right of Sri Rama in a  standing pose, her right hand gracefully extended downwards, the left holding a lotus bud. The idol of L.akshmana is a similar  replica of the idol Sri Rama.

The figure of Sugriva is in the  standing pose and the hands folded in an attitude of prayer. This has already been referred to earlier. There are also beautiful copper idols of Angada and Hanuman exhibited  separately  in the Ramar Medai platform outside  the shrine in  the Antarala Mantapam. Opposite to  these  beautiful copper idols of Vishvaksena, Ananta  and Garuda are found.

 

7. The Chakrattalvar or Sudarshana :

This deity always precedes the Utsava Murti in processions. He however  figures in separate procession on the ankurarpanam and on the tirthavari day of the Bramhostavam  on the Pushkarini bund in front of the Venkateswara swamy temple.

Sri Tataiah Gunta Gangamma Temple Tirupati

Sri Thathaya Gunta Gangamma is Grama devatha of Tirupati town.  Located in the centre of Tirupati is a temple dedicated to Gangamma, who is believed to be the sister of Lord Venkateswara. The annual fete is celebrated with great fervour by the local residents of Tirupati.

Click To Know More

Once upon a time when Tirupati and surrounding areas are ruled by “Palegondulu”, harassment on women was enormous. During this time in a village “Avilala” the Godess Gangamma was born and grown as most beautiful women. When the Palegondulu want to the Goddess Gangamma with bad intention, she with her grace and power tried to kill him fearing her, Palegondulu was hidden in a remote place.

 

To take him out of hide the Gangamma planned “Ganga Jathra” where the people in Tirupathi do vichitra veshadarana and curse Gangamma for a period of 7 days. On the seventh day the“Palegondulu” comes out of the hide and is killed by Godess Gangamma for the “LokaKalyanam”.

The Gangamma Jatara is a very famous local festival for the is a very famous local festival for the People of Tirupati. It is done every year in month of May.

As the Gangamma temple was in banks of Thathaya gunta, the temple is famous as “Thathaya Gunta Gangamma Temple”.  People worship this goddess with great belief, on Tuesdays and Fridays “Pongallu” is offered to the deity.

There is another interesting story associated with this temple and its goddess.Centuries ago, goddess Gangamma troubled an entire village with a very strange disease that consumed scores of people. This happened year after year in spite of the mass festival called jaatara that was celebrated in honor of the goddess.

One such year when the jaatara was in progress, the goddess felt very sorry for the troubles faced by the villagers. She spoke through one of the devotees who were possessed by her. She vowed to rid the village of the disease if they offered her one human sacrifice every year. The villagers agreed and both the goddess and the villagers honored their vows.

Each year the villagers caught hold of a traveler passing by the village and offered the traveler as a sacrifice to the goddess. The goddess on her part took care of the disease. This went on for some years.

One year a guru by name Tirupati Tatacharya was passing by the village. He was the only one available for the villagers at the time. But then he was a guru. They found it impossible to kill a learned man as a sacrificial animal. Tatacharya found out about the moral dilemma faced by the villagers. He told the villagers that he would meet the goddess on his own and sort it out. The fateful day arrived. Tatacharya on his part asked all his disciples to assemble and continuously chant the famous and all powerful Ashtakshari mantra.  He for himself prepared two hot iron rods that had the conchand discus shapes on their edges. Conch and discus (Shanku and Chakra) are two holy symbols associated with Lord Vishnu and his Vaishnavite devotees. As the jaatara was in progress, the goddess appeared. As usual she took control of one of the devotees and demanded that her food be presented in front of her.  Tatacharya appeared in front of the goddess and took out the hot iron rods to plant the symbols on the goddess. The goddess, initially tried to run away, but she failed in her attempts because of the effects of the Ashtakshari mantra being chanted by the disciples of Tatacharya. Tatacharya tried to plant the symbols on shoulders but missed and planted the symbols on the back instead, perhaps below the neck. The goddess submitted herself to Tatacharya and fell on his feet and sought his forgiveness. Tatacharya accepted her as his disciple and moved her to Tirupati and established a temple for her on the outskirts of Tirupati.

From that time she said goodbye to human sacrifice and instead preferred to accept animal sacrifices. Over a period of time, she gave up both alcohol and animal sacrifices that were offered to her and began to accept only vegetarian offerings.

Temple opens everyday by 5.00 AM with Suprabatha seva and devotees allowed to get darshan till 9.00 PM.

One of the oldest surviving Shivling in the world is located at the Parashurameshvara Temple in Chittor District in Andhra Pradesh. The temple is more than 2,200 years old and is around 25 km east of Tirupati. Gudimallam Shivalingam is believed to be a manifestation of the Trimurtis, with Brahma at the bottom, Vishnu in the middle and Shiva on top. There is an interesting story which narrates the origin of the Gudimallam Shivalingam.

 

Legend has it that Parashuram’s mother Renuka was suspected of infidelity by her husband Sage Jamadagni. The Sage ordered Parashurama to behead his mother. Parashurama obeyed his father and when Sage Jamadagni wanted to reward his son, Parashurama asked him to bring his mother back to life. And she was brought back to life.

 

But Parashuram could not overcome guilt of beheading his mother and he felt remorse about his act. As a penance he was advised by other Rishis to worship Shiva at Gudimallam. After searching of several days, Parashurama found the temple in the middle of a forest. He dug a pond nearby and began his penance. Every day morning a single flower used appear in the pond and Parashuram offered it to Shiva. To guard the single flower, he appointed Chitrasena, a Yaksha. Chitrasena was actually a manifestation of Lord Brahma. Chitrasena had kept a condition that to guard the flower he should be given an animal to eat and a pot of toddy. Parashuram agreed to it and he used to hunt an animal for Chitrasena daily. One day when Parashuram went out to hunt, Chitrasena felt tempted to worship Shiva himself. He used the single flower to worship Shiva. An enraged Parashurama attacked Chitrasena when he found the flower missing. The fierce battle lasted for a long period and finally, Shiva appeared on the scene and merged Chitrasena and Parashuram into the Shivling. The Gudimallam Shivling now shows Parashuram standing on the Yaksha with the hunted beast and toddy pot. Brahma as Chitrasena, Vishnu as Parasurama and Shiva as the lingam form the Gudimallam Shivalingam. Within the temple premises, there are other temples “SHANMUKA” with his two wives “VALLI.”DEVASANA”, “SURYABHAGAVAN” Temple and temple for “ANANDHAVALLI AMMAVARU”.

Temple opens everyday by 5.00 AM devotees allowed to get darshan till 8.00 PM.
