Vimana Venkateswara Swamy

Vimana Venkateswara Swamy

Of all the idols in Anandanilayam, the special darshan of one idol is Vimana Venkateswara Swami. The Kannadigas eulogized swami in many occasions.

History says when Vysaraya was performing kanikarya to tirumalesa, He reinstalled Vimana Venkateswara swami.

 “Salutations to the golden tower where Vimana Sreenivasa Devara” is installed, Vijaya dasulu eulogized swmi (‘Hema gopuradi vimana srinivasa Devaranu nodi namisi’)

Prasanna Venkatapatidasulu said the same verse, and praised swami.

Swami is seated along with the other angles in the presence of Bhuvarahaswami.

The devotees are of the opinion that darshan of this murthy is equivalent to the darshan of Mula Murthy/Prime deity, the destroyer of sins and the auspicious deity.

Anandanilaya was built by Tondaman the emperor. Srinivasa installed on the top of vimana is none other than Bhagawan Harih.
