One of the prominent pilgrimage destinations in South India is Tirupati, which draws lakhs of visitors every year. The presiding deity here is Sri Venkateshwara and the chief points of pilgrimage are Sri Venkateshwara's Temple on Tirumala Hill, the shrine of Govindaraja in Tirupati town and the shrine of Padmavati in Tiruchanur, about 3 miles south of Tirupathi.
Don't Miss Other temples in and around the region include Kapileshwara Temple at Kapilatirtham, the Rama Temple in the town of Tirupati and the Parasareshvara Temple at Jogiallavaram, in Tiruchanur. Another important temple is the Govindarajaswami Temple in Tirupati.
Haridwar is the holy city where the holy river Ganges or Ganga descends from mountains of Gangotri glacier. Literally meaning Gateway to God, Haridwar is the one of the holiest places to Hindus, especially for Har ki Paudi (meaning 'footsteps of the lord') where drops of Amrit(Nectar) fell accidentally. The spiritual cleansing offered by Ganga ghat in Haridwar attracts many Indians and foreigners to seek solace and also to get one with its culture. The evening aarti at Har ki Paudi spellbinds thousands of visitors with gongs, drums, chanting of priests, and sound from conch shells.
The point where Ganga River leaves the Himalayas (at Shivalik), and starts flowing into Northern India plains, is called Rishikesh. Located in the foothills of Himalayas, Rishikesh is a small city in Dehradun, albeit with strong religious and spiritual significance. Therefore its history and etymology deserve a little attention. The word Rishikesh or Hrishikesh is made of two words, Hrishik which means senses and ish which means master or Lord. It therefore translates to Lord of the senses used for God Vishnu who blessed the great sage Raibhya Muni that he (Lord Vishnu) will reside in Rishikesh forever.
Rishikesh receives a large number of tourists and pilgrims for two major reasons. The first one is its proximity to Haridwar. It is only 25 km up north of Haridwar and you can comfortably travel between the two towns using local transport or cabs. Secondly, Rishikesh acts as a base camp or starting point for the 4 pilgrimage sites of Char Dham.
A town that emanates pure religious and spiritual fervour all year long, Shirdi is an important pilgrimage centre for devotees and inductees from all over the world, abode of the famous guru, Sai Baba. Home to the Sai Baba Temple, his burial site, his place of abode for over 60 years, and places of interest related to his life; it is no wonder that Shirdi is such a major place of worship.
A haphazard spread of whitewashed concrete buildings lie at the foothills of Trikuta Mountain. Why an insignificant town draws 8.2 million people annually is hardly a mystery. Katra is the gateway to the Holy Cave Shrine of Vaishno Devi that is on top of the mountain.
Many legends surround the goddess and each one claims that it is a sacred place and that the Mata will make all your wishes come true. At over 5200 ft the goddess is out of reach and a 13 km trek will lead you to her.
Largely influenced by the religious fervor of the devotees who throng its streets Katra stays in line with the beliefs and serves only vegetarian food and alcohol is not allowed here. It is still a small town at heart even when it seems to be in the eye of the storm during peak season and the Navratri Festival around October. A bazaar selling various knick-knacks is the only distraction here.
A helicopter will whisk you away and deliver you at Sanjichhat. If you can't trust your feet, a pony or a palanquin and porters will help you get to the Vaishno Devi Shrine. After seeking the grace of the Mata, if you still have some energy left in you, go further up to the Bhairavnath Temple. After a short rest and food at a bhojanalaya, you can make the trip down.
