This is after Tirumala- another place to see for the devotees who visit there.
Actually the word is in Tamil, but this is one of those rare words of Tamil which has some Similarity to Sanskrit and hence easy to understand. Papa= Sin. Vinasanam= Destroy. Basically it means the people believe that if you bathe in the water your sins get washed away. Well call me crazy but this is something like I can commit murder and then come and bathe!! Oops! But believe it or not we humans are crazy. All over the world all cultures have such some beliefs that do not make any sense. But then that is why we are Humans! I guess!!
Akash Ganga Teertha
Another belief that most people have is that any water coming out from nowhere is a sign of God. This water is called Ganges of the Sky- because it is in the Tirumala Hills.. and real Ganges is thousand Kilometers away.
