Located on the banks of Pushkarini River, Varahaswamy Temple is a temple dedicated to the Varaha incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Varaha is believed to be the guardian of the Tirumala Hills. The temple faces the more prominent Sri Tirumala Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala. The legend has it that Lord Venkateswara was able to stay in Tirumula (originally a Varaha Kshetra or the abode of Sr Adi Varaha Swami) with the permission of Sri Adi Varaha Swami. Therefore, devotees visit to the famous Venkateswara Temple only after visiting this temple and offering 'naivedyam' here.
In the Vaikhanasa Agama texts, the description of Adi Varaha resembles the description of the Adi Varaha Murti due to which the idol of Lord Varahaswami in Tirumala is same as the Adi Varaha’s.
