The queerness of this temple is that there are here two archamurthis - one half hidden, and appearing from navel upwards, and another in standing posture just behind it. The priests narrate that the feet of the half hidden Venkateswara are on the head of Balichakravarti, who when pushed down into Patala prayed that he wished to carry the Lord's feet always on his head as a mark of his adoration. This was granted. So we see the icon from the waist upwards. The same idol was worshipped in the Tretayuga by the emperor Aja, father of Dasaratha and Sri Rama too. In the Dwaparayuga by Sri Krishna and others. another version says that the same feet are on the head of Dwarakamuni, according to his wish. The deity in standing posture was brought from Tirumala and was installed in the  11th century. It is from the date of construction of the magnificent 5-fired tower, prakara minishrines enshrining the images of Alwars etc. by Dharma Appa Rao in 1782, its significance came into lime light. The temple now is equipped with all essentials as that of any divya kshetra boasting of best traditions festivals etc.
