SRIVARI PADAALU (divine foot prints) at Tirumala

Srivari padaalu is about 5 Km from the main temple. It is believed that the Lord descended on the earth at this place and decided on the place where the temple is presently situated. The Lord's feet are worshiped at this point on the hill.

After this, the Lord is said to have passed through Sila thoranam that means natural arch to reach the place where the temple is located.


  • This is one of the few places to which the TTD buses do not ply, so jeeps or private vehicles are the only options.
  • Local taxis Jeeps usually refuse to make a trip for just one place, so they tend to combine two to three places at least. On the same route are the Sila Thoranam and the Chakra Teertham.
  • A visit to all these three places from the TTD bus stand costs about Rs. 300 per jeep, or on a sharing basis, about Rs. 50 per person.
