  • Varaha Swamy is the Lord, who rented 100sq.feet area (about 10square meters) of land on Tirumala hill, as Lord Vishnu happened here & requested Varaha Swamy(from his controlled seven hills) for meditating(and do living..!!!!). In return Lord Vishnu promised (as a compensation)as all Pilgrims shall do the darshan of Varaha Swamy before the Lord Venkateswara. OR their prayers are not fulfilled. Unfortunately many pilgrims ignore this.
  • Visited in Nov '22 ..Sri varaha swamy temple is a must to visit before visiting the main temple of Sri Balaji to fulfill your wishes.....Small but a beautiful temple ,nice stadium like steps to sit opposite the temple .It is inside the compound of Sribalaji temple .No ticket needed to visit only this temple if entered from the N-6 gate(ieNorth). Always the temple premises is spic & span with clean wash rooms at any given time.
