The Greatness of Tumburu- Theertham
Situated at a distance of 12 km from Tirumala and 7 km from Papavinasanam, Tumburu Theertham holds the story of a gandharva who cursed his wife for her laziness.
As per the legend, the lady became a toad who had to survive in the pond till sage Agasthya came there with his disciples.
While the great sage described the divinity of the pond to his disciples, the toad regained her Gandharva form and hence this teertham began to be called as Tumburu teertham.
