* SIGNIFICANCE OF BANDURA SARASSU

There is one LAKE namely "BANDURA SARASSU" near the temple.

Accordingly to mythological references, the LAKE is very pious. It is akin to "PAPANASANAM OF TIRUMALA".

The "STHALAPURANA" reveals that one gets absolved from all sins - "BRAHMA HATYA PATHAKAMULU" even at a glance of the "SARASSU".
