INFORMATION ABOUT TIRUPATI
Tirupati is a temple town in Chittoor District in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is located at the foot hills of Tirumalai.
It is believed that it was "Aadi Varaha Kshetra" (the ancient site of Varaha) mentioned in Indian literature dating during the Mauryan and Gupta regimes. The identity of the deity was disputed until Ramanuja, the famous Vaishnava scholar of the 12th century, declared it to be of Vishnu. K. Jamandas argues that the site was originally a Buddhist shrine, though this remains a minority view.
