Swami Pushkarini Temple Tour Package from Chennai

Swami Pushkarini Temple

A place of utmost reverence and religious significance, it’s believed that Lord Venkateswara himself bathed in this pond along with his consorts. In fact, the lake is considered to be as holy as the mighty River Ganges.

Swami Pushkarini pond lies within the sacred premises of Main Balaji's Temple.It is very usual and highly probable to find a water tank either just beside or nearby every Hindu temple constructed during the ancient and medieval times. The waters of the tank were strictly for temple purposes only – like for the God’s “bath” that is a ritual and worship, cleaning and washing the temples insides and outsides, for use inside the temples for drinking purposes (Not in Tirumala, though), kitchens (if any) and by large, by the folk that stay and live by the temple like the priests’ families and workers, for their daily uses.

The water’s chief and famous uses are bathing and washing by the visiting pilgrims who take a dip or swim in it and, above all, for the temple’s special occasions when the divine images are taken in the temple boat, in the tank waters. The water in the Swami Pushkarini is absolutely NOT stagnant OR infected. It has a state-of-the-art recycling facility and water is treated before it gets into and recycled continuously.

A dip in this highly sacred tank adjacent to the temple is considered a custom before entering the temple. According to the legend, Swami Pushkarini was a pleasure tank of Sri Maha Vishnu in Vaikuntam, and was brought and set on Earth by Garuda, for the sport of Sri Venkateswara. It is adjacent to the Sri Venkateswara temple. A bath in the Swami Pushkarini is believed to clean pilgrims of their sins and bestow temporal prosperity.

Seven Tirthas - Fulfilling the desires of devotees

One among the twenty divine names of the Sri Venkatadri is 'Tirthadri' i.e. the abode of sacred water places.

As per the description in various Puranas like Brahma Purana, Brahmanda Purana, Padma Purana, Varaha Purana and other Puranas there are 1008 major Tirthas on the hill of this Tirumala out of which 108 have divine power of fulfilling the desires of Sri Venkateswara’s devotees.Among these 108 Tirthas, there are only SEVEN Tirthas which can grace the devotees with Moksha. They are:

  • Swami Pushkarini
  • Akasha Ganga Tirtha
  • Papa Vinashana Tirtha and
  • Pandava Tirtha.

A holy Dip in any one of these seven Tirthas will assure the devotee a permanent place in Vaikuntha, the Divine Abode of Sri Maha Vishnu. Here it can be observed that Swami Pushkarini is in the forefront of the Seven Tirthas of salvation. According to various accounts, we come across - every tirtha on the back of this Divine Mountain is the second form of some sage or divine being or a devotee of Lord Srinivasa.

Accordingly, whose form is this Swami Pushkarini is a question of curiosity for all. While there are several accounts in Vamana, Brahmanda, Bahvishyottara, Skanda, Varaha and Padma Puranas praising the greatness of Swami Pushkarini, the account found in Brahma Purana needs a special attention as it gives the details of the origin of this Sacred Tirtha on this Venkatachala.


Lord Sri Maha Vishnu, having left his abode Vaikuntha settled on the southern side of Swami Pushkarini, in the form of Sri Venkateswara along with his beloved Divine Spouse Goddess Ramaa Devi enjoying the serenity of its surroundings. In the pilgrimage to Tirumala Three things are strongly recommended. Of which the

  • First one is taking a holy dip in the Swami Pushkarini.
  • The second one is - to have the Darshan of Lord Sri Venkateswara and
  • The third and the final one having the Prasada.

These three are not available in any of the other regions of the three worlds.

Having been advised by Brahma the sage had been to Swami Pushkarini and took a dip in it with great faith and attained the Punya that is equal to taking bath in all the Tirthas in the Universe.Following him, Kubera, Chandra, Manmatha, Indra and all other gods in different times and on different occasions came to this Swami Pushkarini took holy bath in it and made different kinds of Dana.

In the Bhavishyat Purana, some more episodes are added. As found there a person named Sankha of a royal family took holy bath in Swami Pushkarini and became a Sovereign King. A Brahmin named Narayana took a holy dip in this holy lake and got Moksha. Sri Rama, the son of Dasaratha, could trace out Sita only after taking a bath in this Swami Pushkarini.

Hence every year, on the Dvadasi of the bright fortnight (Lunar Tithi) in Dhanurmasa (Solar Calendar Month) all the Three and Half Crore holy Tirthas of the Mahabhumi (Which is extended up to the Polar Star Dhruva) enter this Swami Pushkarini.
