History Behind the Vakulamatha Temple

Sri Vakulamatha Tirupati

The Vakula Devi Temple is around 300 years old. This temple has spread over 83.42 acres and is developed as a tourist pilgrimage hub. The Gopuram of the temple has been gold plated with 20kg of Gold. The temple has been renovated as per the Agama Shashtra.

There is also an interesting thing that here in this temple, The first pooja was performed here and then the pooja started at the main temple in Tirumala. Later, when Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan invaded here the temple faced a share of spoils and the temple lost its glory.

Even today after the temple’s renovation, we can see the mother-son’s love. The Naivedyam ( Bhog) is first offered to Mata Vakula Devi and then to Lord Venkateswara. The Priests rang a huge bell at Vakulamatha temple to indicate that the Bhog was offered to Mata and later the priests at Lord Venkateswara offered Naivedyam to the Lord.
