Chakra Theertham – Tirumala

Chakra Theertham

Chakra Theertham 

The sacred Chakratheertham is located, a few miles away in the southern direction of Srivari Temple in the green belt of the Seshachala. As per the tamil Karthika masam, on the suddha dwadasi day, the chakra theertham mukkoti event is celebrated every year.

It is, literally a water body named after the chakra, the discus of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that Lord Brahma once wanted to perform penance, and wanted a pure location, and asked Lord Vishnu to find him a suitable place. Lord Vishnu sent his discus, which carved out an area on the hill, creating a place for Lord Brahma to sit. Into the gorge rushed water from the hill streams, providing him with water. More believably, there is an image of Chakrathazhwar (Lord Vishnu depicted in the form of a discus) on one of the rocks here.

And this is the place where the Lord killed a giant with his Sudarshana disc and saved his devotee named Padmanabha.

Sri Sudarshana Chakrathalvar-the anthropomorphic form of Srivaru, Sri Narasimha Swami and Sri Anjaneya Swami idols located at the ChakraTheertham.

According to Varaha Puranam ChakraTheertham is considered as one of the most prominent one among the seven chief “Muktiprada” theerthams in the Sheshachala ranges.
