There are lot of stories surrounding Vimana Venkateswaraswamy from many years and on internet you can see people using their own imaginations to write different stories about the Vimana Venkateswaraswamy.

But the major story which is uncredited or unverified is the story of killing priests inside the temple. It is said that some king has killed priests inside the temple and hence them temple is closed for some years and pilgrims were praying to Vimana Venkateswaraswamy from outside of the temple. This story is fake as none of the historical sources refers to such an incident.

The real reason behind Vimana Venkateswaraswamy is Saint Vyasa Teertha, who lived here in the 16th century, was said to have attained moksha by steadfastly worshiping and meditating on the little image of Lord Venkateswara on the northeastern corner of the Ananda Nilaya Vimanam.

Hundreds of devotees are seen praying to the Vimana Venkateswara daily inside the temple.
