TRISAKTIPEETHAM

According to legend, a famous sage by name Dwaraka once, in the untraceable antiquity was advised by Lord Venkateswara while lost in Penance to, install his image in a temple, lying hidden in an apt-hill, traceable from the position of an eagle sitting on a soap--nut tree. He did. So this place is called after him since then. When the Lord conferred boons on the ardent devotees, its importance went up. Moreover, it is in this area lived acharya Nagarjuna -the Buddhist monk of eternal fame. Many Buddhist relics testify to his existence here, prior to his opening gurukula at Nagarjuna hill that drew students from all over the world. Further this temple claims its connections with Srimadramanuja, the redoubtable Vaishnava pravakta, responsible for the propagation of Vaishnava cult. Belief is attested by the main statue along with Padmavathi and Nanchari installed by him and the traditions introduced by him.
