This sacred tank is adjacent to the Venkateswara temple where pilgrims bathe before entering the main temple. The wooden-float festival of Lord Venkateswara and Avabhrudhasnanam or Chakrasnanam during the Brahmotsavam takes place here. It is believed to be a pleasure tank of Lord Vishnu in Vaikuntham. It was brought and set on Earth by Garuda, for the sport of Sri Venkateswara. A bath in the Swami Pushkarini is believed to cleanse pilgrims of their sins and bestow temporal prosperity.
