Sri Varahaswami Temple on the banks of Pushkarini is situated in the northern face of the Venkateshwara Temple in Tirumala. This temple depicts lord in his Varaha incarnation. Legends say that Varaha is the guardian of the hill and lord Venkateswara had to take permission from Lord Varaha to stay here in the hill. So it is customary that the devotees pay their tribute to Varaha before proceeding to Venkateswara. It is also a testamentary practice that Naivedyam should first be offered to Sri Varahaswami.

Atri Samhita says that Varaha incarnation can be worshiped in three ways such as Adi Varaha, Pralaya Varaha and Yajna Varaha. The idol of Sri Varahaswami in Tirumala is that of Adi Varaha, which is seen as with his leg raised up and carries Bhumidevi in his arms. It reminds of the depiction of the Adi Varaha Murti in Vaikhanasa agama texts.
