The fascinating behind the marriage of Lord Sri Venkatewara(also called Lord
Srinivasa) with Goddess Padmavathi is recounted with pictures.
Brahma and the other Devas praised Sri Varaha for saving the Earth by chanting
the Vedas and showering flowers on Him.Lord Vishnu decided to stay on Earth in the form of Sri Varaha for some time, to
punish the wicked and protect the virtuous.The place then came to be known as Varaha Kshetra and the Varaha Kalpa
commenced.After the departure of Mahalakshmi, a forlorn Lord Vishnu left
and took abode in an ant-hill under a tamarind tree, beside a pushkarini on the
Venkata Hill .Taking pity on Lord Vishnu, Brahma and Maheshwara decided to
assume the forms of a cow and its calf to serve Him.
