Sri Venkateswara Swamy Vari Temple, commonly known as Tirupati Temple sits beautifully on the seventh peak of Tirumala Hills in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. This temple holds great significance in Hindu mythology and is dedicated to the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, Venkateswara.
Nicknamed the “Temple of Seven Hills”, this is referred to as the richest temple in the world. This pivotal landmark is known to have an interesting story.
However, Goddess Laxmi felt insulted and came down to Earth. Thereafter, Lord Vishnu came to Earth in the search of his wife Mahalakshmi and found that she had taken birth as Padmavati in the family of a king. Lord Vishnu took birth as Srinivasa or Venkateshwara and entered the anthill to start meditating. Later on, Venkatashewara and Padmavati met each other.
He borrowed lump-sum money from Kuber to conduct this grand marriage. After getting married to Padmavati, Lord stayed on the hills of Tirumala and this magnificent temple appeared in that place. It is believed that devotees by paying donations help Lord Vishnu in paying that money back to Kuber.
