JAPALI TEERTHAM TIRUPATI

The Hanuman temple at Japali Teertham Tirumala, is one if the least known and most worthy places during visit to Tirumala. After a kilometer's trek into the woods, the darshan of Lord Anjaneya is really a memorable experience. It is located 3 km from Gogarbham dam.

The famous festivals celebrated at this site are Tumburu Phalguna Pournami, Chakra Kartika Masa - Ksheerabdi Dwadasi, Kumaradhara Magha Pournami and Ramakrishna Pushya Pournami. Tourists can also trek from the dense forest to reach this holy pond in Tirumala.
It is believed that Lord Rama along with Sita and Lakshmana stayed here with Hanuman.
There is also a pond called Rama Kund within the temple premises. This place is believed to have been blessed by Lord Hanuman as he himself got peace of mind in this place
One can find a tree at the entrance of the temple with a form of Lord Ganesha at its base and it is believed that Lord Ganesha himself appeared there
Devotees also believe that the holy water of Japali teertham Tirumala can wash away all the evils and sins that they have committed in their life
