According to the legend, Tirumala was originally called “Adivarahakshetra”
(dwelling place of Sri Bhu Varaha Swamy). According to Brahmapurana,
it is Lord Sri Bhu Varaha Swamy who granted land to Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy on
his request to reside in the sacred Seven Hills. As a thanks giving gesture,
Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy had gifted the privilege of first darshan and first naivedyam to
Lord Sri Bhu Varaha Swamy. Thus as per the tradition, it is imperative for the pilgrims to pay a
visit to Sri Bhu Varaha Swamy before visiting Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy.
