Peruru Sri Vakulamatha Temple Timings, History

Sri Vakulamatha Temple was built about 300 years ago and is located on a hillock in Peruru 5 km from the temple city Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. Earlier the first pooja was performed here, then the pooja started at the main temple in Tirumala, later while Hyder Ali and Tippu Sulthan invaded Chandra Giri, this temple faced its share of spoils and plunder, and the temple became nonfunctional and lost its former glory.

According to the wishes of Vakula Maatha, this temple was built in such a way that Maata’s face faces the seven hills, where her son Lord Venkateswara resides.

Peruru Sri Vakulamatha Temple

Who is Sri Vakula Devi:

Vakula Devi is Lord Venkateswara’s adoptive mother. In the past, Yasoda Devi raised Sri Vishnu in the incarnated form of Sri Krishna and, not completely satisfied to see his presence, wished him to continue for some time. He granted her wish in a blessing saying that in another incarnation he would fulfill her wish. In accordance with this boon, Sri Maha Vishnu in the form of Lord Srinivasa now made her happy. Yashoda Devi, born as Vakulamata, enjoyed his presence while serving him.

In the Kali Yuga, Vakula Devi arranged the lord’s marriage with Sri Padmavathi Devi. Thus Vakula Devi fulfills her wish to witness Lord Venkateswara’s Kalyanam. The mother-son love and affection are evident as naivedyam (“bhogh” in Hindi) is first offered to the mother and later to Lord Venkateswara on Tirumala Hill temple.

The priests ring the great bells of the temple of Vakula Mata to indicate the ingenuity offered to the mother, then the priests of Tirumala present offerings to Lord Venkateswara. This was the tradition that was followed in the early times until the temple was destroyed it lost its glory.

The temple was renovated as per Agama Shastra and the gopuram has been gold plated with 20 kg gold with the support of TTD and opened to the public on 23rd June 2022.
