There is an interesting history behing Sri Venkateshwara Swamy sannadhi (Sanctum Sanctorum).
The original plan was to build the temple dedicated to Lord Ranganatha Swamy. However with divine turn of events, the temple became dedicated to Lord Venkateshwara.
In addition, the size of the idol originally planned was 8 foot including the base. However it ended up in 13 foot with original sanctum sanctorum entrance and height sized for 8 foot idol..
Eventually after few days of effort, on June 16, 1998, the current idol finally stood up at current position and all the necessary poojas (Kramam) are performed as per pancharaatra agama kramam, Eshwara Samhithe. On the 48th day of the event, Vimanam was installed.
