Tirumala Thumburu Theertham History | Tumburu Theertham Tirupati

Tumburu Theertham is one of the most popular holy watercourses located at about 12 km from the Tirumala Tirupati Balaji Temple and 7 km from Papavinasanam. This sacred Theertham has a story behind its formation, which is about a gandharva and his lazy wife. According to Legend, the gandharva cursed his wife to become a toad because he was unable to tolerate her laziness. The toad survived in the pond till the arrival of sage Agasthya. When sage Agasthya arrived there and while he was explaining to his disciples about the divinity of the pond, the toad regained her Gandharva form. Since then this Theertham came to be known as Tumburu Teertham.

Tumburu Theertham is at a distance 7 Km from Papa Vinasanam and Kalyani Dam point, but you have to walk through a difficult terrain. Every year, the route to the Theertham is open to public during the Palguna Poornima in the month of March. The pilgrims can also visit the other five sacred Theerthams on the way to this place.

One should carry food and water because it is not available on the way to this place.
