Sila Thoranam

Sila Thoranam, a naturally formed arch of rock, is about 1 km north of the Sri Venkateswara Temple at Tirupati in Chittoor District. Reputed as the only one of its kind in Asia, it is believed to be several million years old. It is believed to be the place where the deity Lord Venkateshwara came down to earth. Rock impressions of foot and wheel are seen behind the arch. Legend says that the foot belongs to Lord Vishnu.
