Padmavathi Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the goddess Padmavathi (Alamelumanga), the consort of Venkateswara. The temple is situated in Tiruchanur area of Tirupati city in Tirupati district of Andhra Pradesh, India. The temple is under the administration of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams.
It is believed that the goddess Lakshmi was born as Alamelu to Akasha Raja, the ruler of this region, and wed Venkateswara of Tirupati. Lakshmi gave darshan to Venkateswara on a red Lotus flower (Padma in Sanskrit) at Alamelu mangapuram after his deep penance for twelve years. According to tradition, the goddess manifested herself in the holy Pushkarini called Padmasarovaram in a golden lotus. The Venkatachala Mahatyam states that the Sun-god Suryanarayana was instrumental in blossoming of the lotus in full splendour. A temple dedicated to Suryanarayana is situated on the eastern side of the Pushkarini. The Padma Purana gives a vivid description of the advent of the goddess and subsequent wedding with Venkateswara . The manifestation of Padmavathi occurred in the month of Karthika on Sukla Paksha Panchami when the star Uttarashada in the ascendent. The Brahmotsavam of the goddess is celebrated with all pomp and glory to commemorate the occasion.
