Lord Venkateswara’s foster mother is Vakula Devi. Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, is home to the Vakula Matha Temple. According to Tirumala tradition, it all started in Dvapara Yuga when Yasoda, Lord Krishna’s foster mother (avatar of Lord Vishnu), complained to him that she couldn’t witness any of his marriages. Lord Krishna responds that he would make sure she has such an opportunity later in the Kali Yuga.

Sri Vakulamatha Temple was established some 300 years ago on a hillock in Peruru, 5 kilometres from the temple city of Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. Previously, the first pooja was done here, and then the pooja moved to Tirumala’s main temple. Later, when Hyder Ali and Tippu Sulthan conquered Chandra Giri, this temple suffered its share of loot and plunder, and the temple became nonfunctional and lost its previous splendour.

According to Vakula Maatha’s wishes, this temple was built such that Maata’s face faces the seven hills where her son Lord Venkateswara lives. In the Kali Yuga, Lord Vishnu appears in the world as Lord Venkateswara, and Yasoda is reborn as Vakula Devi, Lord Venkateswara’s foster mother, to arrange his marriage with Padmavati, the daughter of King Akasa Raja. As a result, Vakula Devi gets her wish to witness Lord Venkateswara’s kalyanam (wedding).

Temple’s Emergence:

Because Vakula Devi finest depicts the mother-son bond in Lord Venkateswara’s life, a temple in her honour was built roughly 300 years ago atop Perurubanda mountain, around the lovely Perur hamlet. The temple occupies more than 50 acres of land and is located within 10 kilometres of the Tirumala hills. According to the wishes of Vakula maata (mother), this temple was built such that the maata’s face faces the Seven Hills, where her son Lord Venkateswara lives.

The mother-son bond is so strong that naivedyam (‘bhogh’ in Hindi) is first offered to the mother and then to Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala. The priests at Vakula maata temple ring the great bells to symbolise naivedyam offered to the mother, and the priests at Tirumala afterwards submit sacrifices to Lord Venkateswara. Such was the practise in the past, until the temple was destroyed and its splendour was gone.

Mining without a permit:

Politics, corruption, and the negligent attitude of those in power, according to activists and Tirupati residents, have resulted in inadequate temple maintenance. The mound on which the temple is built is recognised for its high rock quality, which is illegally mined for use in the construction business. Because these illegal miners are intimately tied to district leaders, the Administration and Police appear impotent.

Meanwhile, illicit quarrying was gradually removing the hill from all sides. It indicates that up to 80% of the hill was levelled. Because the Temple’s foundation has weakened, it is possible that it will fall. Members of the archaeology club have also raised concern about the lack of interest in conserving the centuries-old temple. 

With the cooperation of TTD, the temple was rebuilt according to Agama Shastra and the gopuram was gold plated with 20 kg gold before opening to the public on June 23, 2022.
