Kulashekarapadi at Tirumala Srivari Temple

It is a threshold to the Sanctum. It is stone step between the Sayana Mandapam and the Garbhagriha. It is given this name because Kulashekara Alwar, one of the great Vaishnavite saints, wished to be reborn as the threshold to the Lord’s shrine. Rituals that cannot be accommodated in the Sanctum are performed here.

Kulashekara Alwar expresses that he wished to be the padi, pedestial, if only to enjoy seeing the coral lips of the Lord.
