VisheshAadi Varaha sannadhi- It is customary to have the darshan of Aadi Varaha before Lord Srinivasa. Prasadams to Lord Srinivasa is first offered to Varaha Perumal. Tirumala is situated amidst seven Hills namely Venkadadri, Seshachala, Vedachala, Garudachala, Vrishapadri, Anjanadri and Aanandadri. Lord became very happy seeing the temple constructed by Thondaman and hence the vimanam is called Ananda Nilaya. As per the Sthala Puranam, brahma lit two lamps for lokakshemartha and is glowing to this day. Sri Aadivan Satagopan constructed the steps to Tirumala. In the Thayar temple, there are separate Sannadhis for Sri Krishna and Soundararajan.
