PRADHANA VANTASHALA –POTU (MAIN KITCHEN)

This kitchen is a very ancient one. All prasadams offered to the Lord are prepared here. Due to the ever-increasing rush, preparation of some items is in padi pootu in Sampangi Pradakshina. The Lord has a good appetite not only for delicious food but also for fragrant flowers and ornaments. Lord Venkateswara who loves delicious food, happily shares the same with his devotees in the form of Prasadam. Tenali Ramakrishna, the court poet of Sri Krishna Deva Raya has bestowed the title ‘Thindimendayya’ (voracious eater) on the Lord after he was unable to assess the Lord’s food intake. Nowhere in the world ‘Prasadams’ of this magnitude are prepared with pure ghee. It is believed that the left over ghee after preparing items on a day is sufficient enough (for preparing prasadams) in smaller temples through out the year.
