Alivelu Mangapuram Temple

Trichanoor, Sri Padmavathi Ammavari temple is situated 5 Kms fro Tirupathi. It is also called as Alamelu Mangapuram , one of the important  temples  in Tirupathi . It is 3rd temple in the sequence of temples to be visited in Tirupathi. (Checkout my other article, Tirumala Tirupathi). 

Sri Padmavathi is the divine consort of Lord Venkateswara. The history behind the Padmavathi Temple is  Once Brugu Maharshi insulted Lord Vishnu by kicking him  with his feet, then Lord Vishnu forgives him, but Godess Lakshmi got angry and went to patalaloka. Then a divine voice heard to her that there is pushkarini on the banks of river Swarna mukhi.

For 12 years she went into penance and in the 13th year she came out from Pushkarini sitting in a lotus flower on Panchami thithi Kartheeka Masam, Uttarashada Nakshatram. As she came out from a lotus flower she is called as Padmavathi who is the Goddess Lakshmi herself.

Sri Padmavathi is the daughter of Aakasha Raja. Lord Venkateswara married Padmavathi and stayed for some time in Srinivasa Mangaparuam before going to Tirupathi. In Srinivasa Mangapuram there is Kalyana Venkateswara Swamy Temple, which is also an important place to be visited in Tirupathi.
