Tirupati- The Spiritual Soul of Andhra

Nestled at the foothills of the Eastern Ghats and the Tirumala Hill, Tirupati is synonymous with Balaji or Lord Venkateswara who blesses this quaint little town. Its lush hills, serpentine roads, rustic charm, and religious fervor work magic to create a divine connection with the lord.

The town is home to many temples and is considered the gateway to Tirumala Hills, the abode of Lord Balaji. Thousands of people flock here to pay obeisance and tonsure their heads as an offering to Lord Balaji. In spite of long queues & chaotic crowds, Tirupati’s surrounding natural beauty and deep spiritual ambience makes for a gratifying experience.
