Chakra Teertham

Chakra Teertham

Small waterfall popular during rainy season, with rock formations & an adjacent temple.

Situated at a distance of 2 Kms from Tirumala Bus Station & 3 km from Tirumala Tirupati Balaji Temple, Chakra Theertham is the site for a water body near Sila Thornam and is associated with an interesting legend.

According to the legend, Lord Brahma wanted to observe penance and to clean this place, Lord Vishnu plunged his Sudershana Chakram, thus creating a crater. It is one of the famous places of sightseeing in Tirumala.

Visiting this site is considered as good as touching the Lotus Feet of the Lord, which will deliver the devotees from their travails.

The waterfall here is an amazing sight to behold and is the location where the idol of Lord Venkateswara is brought during the Brahmotsavam celebrations.

Chakrathirtha Mukkoti is a great celebration performed on the Margasirsha Sukla dvadasi that occurs in Tula Masa according to Tamil Solar Month. Agamas instruct that all the three and half crore holy streams in the universe come and dwell in the Chakra tirtha on this day. Hence this is very grandly celebrated with great faith and devotion.
