Tumbur Teertham of Tirumala, Chittor District, A.P.

Tumbur Teertham is situated 16 Km. away from Tirumala. Tumbura Gandharva teertham is one of the natural water courses which dates back from Vedic ages. A story related to this place says a Tumbur Gandharva once cursed the wife of Agastya muni and turned into a Toad till Agastya visit the same place. After the return of Agastya, the Toad turned back into Gandharva. So this place got its name Tumbura Gandharva Teertham.
