Varahaswamy is believed to own the entire Tirumala Traditionally
devotees offer their prayers at Varahaswamy TempIe first and then
proceed to the main Temple. Even Naivedyams offered first to Varahaswamy.
Located on the South Mada
Street in the vicinity of the main Temple, this Mutt is an important
place on Tirumala. Hathiramjee was an ardent devotee of Sri Balali
and the Lord Himself is believed to have visited his Mutt regularly.
Dasavatara idols and Sri Krishna Temple inside the Mutt are worth
visiting. The Hathiramjee Mutt was taking care of the Tirumala Temple
prior to the formation of TTD in 1933. The Mutt also provides accommodation
to pilgrims (Rs. 100/-to Rs. 200/-).
