Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple is one of the most important temples in Tirupati. Located at a distance of only 5 km from Tirupati, this temple in Tiruchanoor is also known with the name of Alamelu mangapuram Temple or Alamelumangapuram, which denotes the legend associated with Goddess Padmavathi as she is believed to have come on a Golden colour Lotus flower, hence the name denoting - Alar-Lotus, Mel- Top, Manga-Goddess and Puram- village/town.

It is said that devotees must visit Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple and seek Goddess blessings before visiting the Lord Venkateswara Temple of Tirumala.

There are legends behind the Tiruchanur Padmavathi temple which have been mentioned in Puranas, highly revered scripts of Hindu religion. According to a legend, Pundarika, a Brahmin who dedicated himself to the religion and followed the duties as per the shastras, couldn’t have a son till he was 50 years old. When his son was born, he named him Madhava, whom he raised with utmost care, teaching him intricacies of religion and spirituality. Madhava was then married to an equally religious woman, but he got deviated and went with another woman. After her death, unable to bear his loss, he wandered around and eventually joined a group of pilgrims on their way to Tirumala. As he took bath in the holy waters of Sudarshana Lake, and climbed the hills, his sins were washed. It was here that he heard a celestial instruction to bathe in Swami Pushkarini and seek Lord Varaha Swamy blessings.

Later, Madhava was born again as Akasharaja as a son of King Mitravarman of Thondamandalam. However, even after years of his marriage to Dharanidevi, they didn’t have any children. In order to have kids, Akasharaja decided to perform a yagna. When the ground was being ploughed for the same purpose, Akasharaja and his wife Dharanidevi found a child on a lotus flower with thousand petals. This child was named Padmavati, in whose search Lord Venkateshwara down to earth. Eventually Lord Srinivasa and Goddess Padmavathi were married.

According to another legend associated with Sri Padmavathi Sage Ammavari Temple, Maharishi Bhrigu came to meet Lord Vishnu at Vaikuntha. However, when he entered Lord was asleep, which angered him as he took it as an insult; owing to which he kicked the Lord on his chest, which awakened the Lord. Lord Vishnu, instead of getting angry, paid his sincere homage to the sage. Goddess Lakshmi, who was witnessing all this, couldn’t fathom the insult Lord Vishnu in the hands of Maharishi. Owing to this, she went to Patalokam, in search of atonement on the banks of Swarnamukhi River. Later after 12 years in penance, on the 13th year, she emerged as Sri Padmavati on a Golden Lotus on the auspicious day of Panchami in the month of Karthika, aligned with the arrival Uttarashadha Nakshatra. By this time, Lord Vishnu, in the search of Goddess Lakshmi, had come down to earth. As Lord Venkateswara he later married Goddess Padmavathi.

Although devotees visit this temple throughout the year, it is best to visit the temple during some festivals to witness its true grandeur. Navaratri and Dusshera Festival, Theppotsavam (boat festival), Vasanthotsavam and during the month of Kartheeka on the occasion of Goddess arrival as Sri Padmavati, when Lord send gifts of saris, turmeric, tulsi and delicacies on a decorated elephant; are a few of the times when temple is temple with fervor of festivity.

Sri Padmavati Temple timings are from 5 am to 9 pm. It is open on all days. It is easily accessible by road. It is located about 5 km away from Tirupati RTC Bus stand and 5 and a half km from Tirupati Railway station.
