The ‘town of holy shrines’ – Tirupati is at the lap of Chittoor district in the State of Andhra Pradesh. Visitors to the shrines in Tirupati come from not only all over India but also across the world. Indians from the north and south who are devotees of Lord Vishnu visit Venkateshwara Temple which is located on the top of Tirumala hillock. Tirupati is also called Tirumala because of the Vishnu temple that it houses. You can reach Tirumala only after crossing over the 7 peaks - Sapthagiri, which symbolize the 7 lids of ‘Adishesha’ – the oldest serpent according to the mythological stories. A fitting souvenir from Tirupati/Tirumala is their characteristic red toys.
Tirupati’s summers call for light clothing, while monsoons and winters beckon a thicker layer to ensure warmth.
Tirupati/Tirumala is mainly known for its pilgrimage. Modest attire would be best suited.
