Tirupati, a popular Hindu pilgrimage center, witnesses a round-the-year influx of pilgrims – around 30,000 per day that could go up to 1, 00,000 at special occasions – from different parts of the globe. This place is famous for the ‘Lord Venkateswara Temple’, which is believed to be the holiest and the richest temple in India. This divine destination is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is mentioned in many ancient Hindu scriptures. It was constructed by the Pallawa kings in the 10th century or before, and boasts a great historical significance and an excellent Dravidian style of architecture. The religious significance of the temple is so tempting that every year an extending number of tourists wait here for hours to get a glimpse of lord’s idol. It’s believed that the temple was once the adobe of Lord Vishnu. And perhaps that’s why it’s considered the ‘Only Vaikuntham on the Earth’.

Tirupati is a small town situated amidst the forested hills of Eastern Ghats in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It dwells in the Chittor district in the extreme south of the state. The place is smoothly connected to the major cities of south India through roads; the town is 130kms from Chennai and around 260kms from Bangalore. Someone coming from Chennai can use excellent bus service that is operated on daily basis. Apart from that, a taxi can be hired to get in Tirupati. Most of the taxi operators have their price already fixed; however you can negotiate if you feel the fare unfair. By Trains, Tirupati is no hassle to approach. Most of the trains from Mumbai to Chennai stop at Renigunta which is just 15kms from Tirupati. People coming from North India should get down at Gudur, around 100kms from Tirupati. The city itself has a small station connected to many South Indian cities.

The main Tirumala Temple along with 17 other temples n Tirupati is managed by an autonomous body called ‘Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam’ (TTD). With more than 14,000 employees engaged with this committee, it manages everything related to ‘Tirupati darshan’: from booking reservation to transportation, and food supply to accommodation. It provides the devotees with many services to put them on ease. A number of ordinary and deluxe buses have been operated by the TTD from the Tirupati station. It takes around half an hour to cover 18kms uphill journey by the buses. However, the best way to reach Tirumala hills is by walk that takes around 4 hours for a healthy person. It gives a sheer pleasure gives the pilgrims chances to see many enchanting vistas. Now tour agents have understood the needs of devotees and provide them with customized Tirupati packages from different parts of the country. One can buy a suitable Tirupati package through a reliable travel portal and ensure an enjoyable and hassle-free ‘Tirupati darshan’.
