  • In between Srivari Paadam & Sila Thoranam, there is Dharmagiri (holy script Sanskrit school for brahmins). Public not allowed inside.
  • Belief is that Lord Brahma asked Lord Vishnu to show a suitable pure location for penance.  Lord Vishnu then sent his discus, which carved out an area on the hill, creating a place for Lord Brahma. A narrow pass of water from the hill streams rushed around. Vishnu with his Sudarshana chakra cleansed Brahma’s grief. Chakra then fell here, hence water here is known as Chakra Theertham. To rid of demons, who were a menace to life, a devotee names Padmanabha meditated.
