A Hindu-Vaishnavite temple known as Sri Varaswamy Temple or Bhoo Varahaswamy Temple is situated in the hill town of Tirumala in Tirupati. The temple is devoted to Lord Varaha - Vishnu's third incarnation in Dasavatharam. The temple lies on Swami Pushkarini's northern banks.
As per the myth after rescuing Earth from Hiranyaksha, Lord Varaha stayed on this mountain on the northern bank of Swami Pushkarini. As a result, Tirumala Hills is known as Adivarahakshetra. At the beginning of the Kaliyuga, Lord Varaha granted Lord Venkateswara's request and handed him the territory. Lord Venkateswara gave the gift of the first darshan and the first naivedyam to Sri Varahaswami, a privilege given by the Lord as a thankful gesture.
As mentioned in the book of Brahma Purana, before visiting the Sri Venkateswara Temple, pilgrims should first offer naivedyam to Sri Adi Varaha Swami. Three different ways are used to worship the Varaha Avatara, according to the Atri Samhita (Samurtarchanadhikara) - Adi Varaha, Pralaya Varaha and Yajna Varaha.
