Lord Sri Bhoo Varahaswamy is Swayambhoo. After the Lord rescued the earth by killing Hiranyaksha, at the request of Bhooma Devi, Lord Venkatesa stayed back here. Puranas mention that Lord ordered Garuda to get kreedaparvatham( where Lord used to sport with His consorts in Vaikuntam and which is very dear to Thayar) from Vaikuntam as He decided to stay back here. This was done accordingly. Puranas mention that this hill was full of precious stones and glittered like gold. Since Varahaswamy stayed here, this kshetram is known as Varaha Kshetram.
Later on, Lord Srinivasa in the course of wandering, came to this place and stayed here for which He had to obtain permission from Lord Varahaswamy, the owner of the Hills. Hence, even to this day, Lord Varahaswamy gets priority in everything. Lord Srinivasa had promised Lord Varahaswamy that all his devotees would have Varahaswamy’s darsanam prior to His darsanam. Even to this day, for neivedyam , one part of the food is taken to Varahaswamy’s temple and another part is taken to Srinivasar’s temple. Neivedyam for both the Lords is done simultaneously. As Brahmotsavams cannot be performed for 2 presiding deities at the same time, Sri Ramanuja has ordered that the Brahmotsavam performed for Varhaswamy doesn’t clash with Srinivasa’s Brahmotsavam. It may take about 10 minutes to have Lord Varahaswamy’s darsanam and one can perform Archanai here. From here, one has to proceed to Vaikuntam Q complex.
