There is Gogarbha theertham at a distance of three kilometers to the north of the main temple of Tirumala. Many saints performed penance in this cave which resembled the womb of a cow. It is also called Pandava Theertham because the Pandavas, it appears, stayed here and served the Lord during their stay in the forests. Rudra, the guardian angel of the shrine, stands beside the Theertha in the form of a huge boulder. Abhishekam is performed to this Rudra on every Maha shivaratri day with namaka and chamaka mantras.
Will be opened for public during day time only till light lasts in the evening.
