Sri Venkateswara Swamy Vari Temple History

Srinivasa Venkateshwara Swamy is the God of Kaliyug. During Dwapara Yug, Bhagwan Vishnu promised his devotees that he would take the form of Sri Venkateshwara in Kaliyug.

Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple is located at Tirupathi in Andhra Pradesh. The temple is one of the wealthiest temples in India. 

Sri Venkateswara Temple was built by Tamil King Thondaimaan. The origin of the temple starts with Saint Brihu.

Hindus believe that the Kaliyug God removes all kinds of poverty. He blesses all his devotees with a meaningful, wealthy, and peaceful life.

Shri Venkateshwara was poor as Goddess Mahalakshmi had left him. He had nothing to offer to the brides and perform his marriage rituals.

God Kuber couldn’t stand Srinivasa’s misery. So the God of wealth, Sri Kuber, offered a loan for God to conduct his wedding.

Goddess Mahalakshmi was heartbroken with the Shri Vishnu taking the loan. So she appeared before him and promised to stay with him till he returned the borrowed money to Kuber.

To date, God hasn’t repaid his debt. Devotees believe that by offering money in the Hundi, they help God in his debt redemption.
