Akasaganga Theertham Tirumala

About Project

The Akashganga (Heavenly Ganges likened to The Milky Way or heavenly river) waterfall north of the Tirumala temple. This is very famous for the prime reason is that its waters are used for The Abishekam (Lord’s bath) every day. All the rituals of the temple are conducted with its waters, indicating the high importance of this waterfall. In the olden days, the priestess took turns to carry the water all the way from this part of jungle to the temple in morning hours by the rough walk path that meanders thru the jungle even to this day. After the Tirumala Tirupati Devsthanam came into existence, water lines were laid into the temple and thus simplified. This is a beautiful place where the mountain stream gushes out in a deep but very well paved and accessible ravine. Water is procured from this place for Abhishekam. In rainy season Akashganga’s gushing waters provide a beautiful sight and a bath here at that time is really refreshing.
