The world famous Tirumala Temple is found in the hill town of Tirumala in Tirupati. Tirupati is well-known for Sri Venkateswara Swamy temple dedicated to Lord Venkateswara.
Tiru means ‘Holy’ and mala means ‘hills’ in Dravidian language. Therefore it translates as Holy Mountains. The Tirumala Hill is 853m above sea level and is about 10.33 square miles in area. It comprises seven peaks, representing the seven heads of Adisesha, thus earning the name Seshachalam. The seven peaks are called Seshadri, Neeladri, Garudadri, Anjanadri, Vrushabhadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri. The temple is on Venkatadri the seventh peak, and is also known as the “Temple of Seven Hills”.
The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Venkateswara, a form of the Hindu god Vishnu. Venkateswara is identified by other names: Balaji, Govinda, and Srinivasa. The temple is the richest pilgrimage center, after the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram. The temple draws about 50,000 to 100,000 pilgrims daily, while on special occasions and festivals, like the annual Brahmotsavam, the number of pilgrims shoots up to 500,000, making it the most-visited holy place in the world.
There are several legends associated with the sign of the Lord in Tirumala. According to one legend, the temple has a murti of Lord Venkateswara, which it is believed shall remain here for the entire time of the present Kali Yuga.
