Sri Padmavathi Devi's temple is away from Lord Sri Venkateswara's temple( Balaji in Tirumala). Legend has it that the Lord (Sri Maha Vishnu, who later took on the incarnation of Sri Venkateswara) showed his reverence towards the sage, Bhrigu Maharshi, even though the sage had insulted Vishnu by kicking Him on the chest. In anger, Sri Maha Lakshmi (the Lord's consort) reached Patala Loka, where she heard a divine voice stating that a pushkarini was dug on the banks of the river Swarnamukhi, and here She immersed herself in penance for 12 years. In the 13th year (during the month of Karteeka, on Panchami day in the last fortnight, highlighted by the nakshathram Uttarashadha), Sri Padmavathi emerged from a golden lotus. It is believed that Goddess MahaLakshmi herself emerged as Sri Padmavathi.

It is said that a visit to Tirumala is fruitful only after visiting the Sri Padmavathi Devi temple as by custom, Lord Balaji will be happy to hear from his visitors that they has visited his consort Sri Padmvati and had sought her blessings.

Tiruchanoor, also known as Alamelumangapuram, is about 5 km from Tirupati.
