Lord-Srinivasa1Sri Vaishna sampradaya (Sri Vaishnavate tradition) opines that the Rig Veda verse X.155.1 makes an indirect reference to the temple. One such translation goes as: “The person, devoid of wealth and vision, is implored to go to the hill which burns up all evil (vikata for Venkata) and drives away all obstacles to peace and prosperity. The call of the rishi Sirimbitha has obviously not gone in vain”.
