Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple | Temples in Tirupati

Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple | Temples in Tirupati

Sri Tiruchanoor Temple – Alamelu Mangapuram

From Tirpurati, the Alamelu Mangapuram temple is situated at a comparatively close-by distance of 5 KM. The temple is devoted to the Goddess Padmavathi, the consort of Sri Venkateswara Swamy. Here the Goddess prevails at the glory of the marriage attire of being united to Sri Venkateswara Swamy. This temple is also manifested in the significance of femininity in the Hindu tradition. It is also a shrine of love between the Lord Mahavishu and Goddess Lakshmi. The temple city of Tirupati, is known for its many temples and compelling architecture. But among these the Sri Tiruchanoor Alamelu Mangapuram temple needs to be compulsorily visited and paid homage, as the Tirupati Darshan gains total fruition only through the blessings from Goddess Padmavathi.

History of the Temple

Sri Padmavati Ammavari Temple in Alamelu Mangapuram was believed to be constructed during the period of Pallava dynasty. Historians mentioned that the temples region was known as Tiruvenkatam, which was also under the Cholas kingdom with the name of “Rajendra Cholamandalam”. It was found by archaeologists that the village where Sri Padmavati Ammavari Temple is located was the habitat of Srivaishnava sect people during eighth century. A new temple was constructed at Alamelu Mangapuram for Goddess Padmavati as the main deity along with Lord Srinivasa as the representative idol during the period of Pallava dynasty as the ancient Temple of Lord Shri Venkateswara located at Tirumala Hills was not accessible to all the devotees.

Special Occasion at Sri Tiruchanoor Temple

At Alamelu Mangapuram, you can witness important celebrations throughout the year. Some of them are famous Devi festivals while some are special occasions dedicated to the Purna of Alamelu Mangapuram temple.

During the Navarathri Festival (Dussehra), the Alamelu Mangapuram temple also takes part in the nationwide celebration of good over Evil.

At the Kartheeka month festival, the Lord presents precious gifts to his beloved. During this time the lord sends costly sari, blouse piece, holy tulsi, turmeric leaves and exquisite delicacies offering birthday presents to the Goddess Padmavathi atop a splendidly decorated Elephant. This is followed with a celebrated procession in an ivory palanquin for a holy bath in Padma Sarovar.

The Theppotsavam (boat festival) is an important celebration, which occurs in the five days during the month of Jyeshtha month (June month).

 Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple and Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple are historically interconnected and conditional on each other. During the festival of Vasanthotsavam, we devotee's celebrate this with the procession atop the golden chariot during the 2nd day of the festival.

The festival of Sri Padmavathi Parinayam is held during Navami, Dasami and Ekadasi in the month of Vaisaka month. During the three-day festival, the majestically decorated idol of Sri Malayappa Swamy of Lord Venkateswara, arrives in grand style on the Gaja vahanam, Aswa vahanam and Garuda Vahanam on the three consecutive days.
