Tirumala is the seat of Lord Venkateswara who is the God of Worship to all the Hindus spread out in the world. Lord Venkateswara is believed as an embodiment of Lord Vishnu but there is another argument that he is an incarnation of Shakthi and Shiva and believe Tirumala as Shakthi Peeth. But the Empirical Scholars and temple priests say that Lord Venkateswara is an embodiment of Lord Vishnu as he appears like a human. It is learned that Sri Ramanujacharya also declared the God as incarnation of Vishnu. Hathiram Baba, Thondamanu Chakravarti, Annamayya all witnessed God as an embodiment of Vishnu.
