It is said that the annual income of this temple is more than Rs.2000 crores. Popular for the shaving of the head by the devotees in the temple, their tenth of the income comes from the sale of hair.

The legend behind this temple can be found in the Hindu texts.

The temple of Tirumala is dedicated to Lord Venkateswara (Lord Balaji, Lord Srinivasa, Lord Malayappa), an incarnation of Sri Maha Vishnu. It is believed that God seemed to save his devotees from the difficulties of Kali Yuga. According to the Hindu scriptures Varaha Purana, Adi Varaha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu in the form of a boar, had turned the Tirumala Hills into his home. Later, Sri Maha Vishnu, in the form of Lord Venkateswara descended to reside in these hills, on the shores of Swami Pushkarini, which is another popular theertham here.

The history of the Tirupati temple shows many important dynasties such as the Pallava dynasty (Kanchipuram of the ninth century), the Chola dynasty in the tenth century (Thanjavur) and the Vijayanagara empire (fourteenth and fifteenth centuries). Now the temple is maintained by Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD).

Prayers begin each morning with Suprabhatam, which consists mainly of awakening the Lord at 3.00 am, ending at Ekanta Seva at 1.00 pm when the Lord falls asleep.
