TUMBURU THEERTHAM TIRUMALA
Tumburu Theertham is one of the natural watercourses, which dates back to the Vedic ages. Story behind the formation of the theertham states that a Gandharva cursed sage Agastya’s lazy wife to became a toad that had to survive in this pond till the sage arrived. When sage Agastya came here with his disciples, the toad took the Gandharva form and hence the pond was known as Tumburu Theertham
Bathing in this water is really refreshing and is said to wash away the evils and confer good fortune. There is a platform built by the temple governance where the running water is diverted for devotees to take the water first in hand. Every pilgrim visiting Tirumala Tirupati must and should visit this place.
