According to purana  eventhough bhrigu maharishi kicked Vishnu on his chest Lord Vishnu showed reverence to the rishi Brighu, Lakshmi Devi  getting angry on this (Godess padmavathi ) left to Patal lok and stayed in pushkarini near Swarnamukhi for 12 years and on 13th year she again appeared.

It is said that during the month of Karteeka, on Panchami day in the last fortnight, highlighted by the nakshathram Uttarashadha, Sri Padmavathi emerged from a golden lotus from Pushkarini. It is believed that Goddess MahaLakshmi herself emerged as Sri Padmavathi.

The deity here sits in padmasana and is represented with four hands, two of them each holding a lotus and the front two hands showing Abhaya and Varada mudras protecting the devotees and assuring them to fulfill their desires.
 It is said that a visit to Tirumala is fruitful only after visiting the Sri Padmavathi Devi temple.

 beautiful.
