The number of spiritual centers in India is so extensive and the practice of pilgrimage so ubiquitous that the whole country looks like a huge consecrated place categorized into varied centers and fields. If Hindu religious sanctuaries in India are talked about, Tirupati is the name that certainly comes into the mind. Located in the southeastern part of Andhra Pradesh, the town is recognized as the adobe of ‘God Venkateswara’, an incarnation of ‘Lord Vishnu’. Here, the center of attraction is the 10th century Venkateswara temple, located on the nearby Tirumala Hills at an elevation of around 860m. However, the region houses many other ancient temples and places too, having their own historical and religious significance.

This ancient and sacred shrine of Sri Venkateswara is nestled on the seventh peak of Tirumala hills, origins of that are found in ‘Vaisnavism’. According to an ancient tale, the great sage Bhrigu once visited to the adobes of Trinity – Lord Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu, to settle a dispute regarding the supreme power among the three.

First, he went to Lord Shiva who ignored him completely. Next, he visited to Brahmaji, and same happened there too. Then the infuriated sage went to Lord Vishnu who was resting that time. Bhrigu, in his anger, kicked on the chest of Lord Vishnu. Vishnuji put up with the insult considering the importance of the great sage, but Luxmi – wife of Lord Vishnu – did not. She got angry and went away from Vaikunta. It’s believed that the Lord Vishnu came down to earth and settled here at Tirumala hills to remove his loneliness. Later on, he inhumed and turned to stone. After a long time had passed, cows from the nearby kingdom started to milk their own at a particular place on the hill. When the king came to know of it, he ordered to examine the reason. Then he found an underground form of Lord Srinivasna, and built a temple that is now famous temple Tirupati.

There is a 2m high idol of Lord Venkateswara in the temple. It’s believed that any wish made in front the idol gets fulfilled. That’s why millions of pilgrims visit here to pay homage to the lord, and pray to fulfill their wishes. A fabulous diamond crown is attached with this awe-inspiring black idol that is said to be the most precious single ornament in the world. The surrounding area of the temple is quite beautiful, and renders a unique atmosphere full and tranquility and spirituality. However, the temple itself is a master piece of South Indian Dravidian Architecture. Devotees, who come from across the world, stand in line chanting ‘Govinda’ and ‘Om Namo Venkateswara’ to reach the main temple for ‘Tirupati darshan’.

Today, for the convenience of pilgrims, numerous travel agencies provide Tirupati packages to match one’s own requirements and budget. To buy a suitable Tirupati package, Internet is the most convenient and reliable option. Searching over Internet, you can find some companies offering Tirupati online booking to put the buyers on ease.
