Aadhi Varaaha Swamy Temple

Sri Varahaswamy Temple is located on the banks of Pushkarini River, which faces the Sri Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala. The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu in his Varaha incarnation. Varaha is believed to be the guardian of the Tirumala Hill and Lord Venkateswara took his permission to stay at this hill. If visiting the Venkateswara temple, it is advised to first pay a visit to this temple. The reason behind this too finds roots in a legeng, according to which Sri Varahaswami owned th seven hills. He agreed to hand them to Sri Venkateswaraswami, on the condition that he too, shoul be worshipped. Hence, Sri Venkateswaraswami asked his devotees, to first pay visit to Sri Varahaswami and then to him. It is customary to offer prayers to Lord Varaha before worshipping at Sri Venkateswara Temple. Devotees also offer Naivedyam at this shrine before moving to the main temple at Tirumala. Lord Varahaswamy can be worshipped in three main ways of Yajna Varaha, Adi Varaha and Pralaya Varaha.
