Things to Do in Tirupati

  • Thirumala Venkateswara Temple

    One of the holiest and most sacred Hindu pilgrimage temples in the world, the Thirumala Venkateswara Temple stands tall in full glory on the seventh peak, the Venkatachala, of the majestic Tirupati Hills.

    A classic example of the ornate and extremely intricate Dravidian style of architecture, the temple attracts a huge number of devotees every year. People travel from faraway places to get a glimpse of the eight-foot tall idol of Lord Venkateswara standing under the magnificent gold-gilded dome Ananda Nilaya Divya Vimana.

  • Tumbhuru Teertham

    Tirumala is surrounded by several water bodies, most of which invariably get linked to characters from mythology and Indian religious texts, thereby giving them a sacred character. Tumburu teertham is another such water body, which is linked to the story of Thumburu, a Gandharva who cursed his wife for her laziness.

    According to the story, the wife became a toad who had to survive in the pond till sage Augusthya came there to her rescue. While the sage explained the significance of the pond to his disciples, the toad recovered her Gandharva form.
