Directions: basic signage of the entrances, footwear, stalls for tickets, seva details are there but chaotic, contradictory and confusing. Service: EO's office is taken over by touts, intermediaries and so called officers who seem to be bestowing more diving grace than the Almighty in Sanctum itself( atleast wants you to experience by virtue of their disposition to get Rs.200-300 VIP...

The temple is open whole day from early morning to evening. One can perform the Rahu-Khetu pooja here. Special darshan is available for Rs.50 and The Rahu Kethu poojas are done every hour and can have... More

One of the classical example of temple architecture. Very close to Tirupati, but often neglected by pilgrims coming to Tirupati. A must to see temple of devotees of Lord Shiva or Eeshwara.

Just about 40 kms from the famous temple town of Tirupathi, this ancient temple is famous for its VAYU LINGA. There is a lamp inside the inner sanctum that is constantly flickering despite the lack of air movement inside. This can be seen as you are closer to the sanctum. The most important puja that many devotees perform here is... More
