Theertam (Theerta) literally refers to water. In Hindu mythology, it is referred to as the physical holy water body associated with a temple or deity
Theertam is a famous Saivite Temple and Theertam, located at Tirupati in the Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh, India. The idol is believed to be installed by Kapila Muni and hence Lord Siva here is referred to as Kapileswara.
The temple stands at the entrance to a mountain cave in one of the steep and vertical faces at the foot of the Tirumala hills which are part ofSeshachalam Hills, where the waters of the mountain stream fall directly into Temple Pushkarini known as "Kapila Theertam". A huge stone statue of a seated bull "Nandhi", Lord's Shiva's steed, greets devotees and passersby at the entrance to the temple.
