    SRIVARI METTU is open for all now I came with a friend to Tirumala. There is no tag being provided for early darshan for those who are climbing and will have to go for the free darshan which is now over 10 hours and that's after the climb that's a let down. You can send you luggage from the office in front of SRIVARI METTU and pick it up on Tirumala after the climb expect a delay in case it's crowded. If u need to make bookings u can complete them before you collect your bags.
    The only option if you have no 300rs ticket/ recommendation is either free darshan or 10500 per head which u can donate and purchase in the JTO office.
    If you go for the 10500 you will also a get a room based on availability.

    This is the best Devasthan I have ever travelled. Roads are so neat and clean and well maintained. No nuisance of hawkers.
    Security system is so so good and so supportive.
    Other big Devasthan like Shirdi, Haridwar, Dhakineshwar trusts should learn from TTD

    A beautiful temple, huge premises, just ten steps to the main temple altar. The main Tirumala temple is reflected here, the same long walk to see the Lord. Here, Lord Venkateswara is seen bedecked with jewels and flowers, visible deep inside the Sannidhanam, just like at Tirumala.
    The legend goes that the Lord, after his wedding to Goddess Padmavathi, stayed here for six months and after that went to Tirumala. Any unmarried person wishing for marriage can visit here to get their wishes fulfilled...
    Wheelchair availability is there. Special darshan is just for Rs.5/-
    This temple, located about 15 km from Tirupati, is also popularly called Srinivasa Mangapuram.

    This temple is located on the left side of the pushkarani near the tirupati temple..
    This temple is a must visit place for pilgrims who visit Tirumala.
    It is said that Lord varahaswamy owns the Tirumala, and he gave place to Lord venkateshwara. Hence, Lord venkateshwara told that each and every devotees who come to have darshan of HIM should first have the darshan of Lord varahaswamy.. only then the purpose of visit to Tirumala will be completed..

    Hence, those who visit Tirumala,kindly have darshan of Lord varahaswamy and get HIS blessings..

    This notified National Geo-heritage Monument is a distinctive geological feature. The arch is also called Silathoranam in the local language (Telugu language: sila means ‘rock’ and thoranam means a garland strung over a threshold, connecting two vertical columns or an ‘arch’ as in this case). The arch is naturally formed in the quartzites of Cuddapah Supergroup of Middle to Upper Proterozoic (1600 to 570 Ma) due to natural erosive forces. In the 1980s, during excavations for a geological fault in the Tirumala hills, geologists found this rare geological formation of the rock arch which has two dissimilar sets of rocks with a connecting thin link. The assessed geological age of the rock arch is 2.5 million years. Formation of the arch is attributed to intensified weathering and erosion of stream action that has withstood the torque of nature. This is a rare geological fault which is technically called in the geological idiom as ‘Eparchaean Unconformity.

    Only two more such arch exists in the world- The rainbow arch in Utah and the arch cut through den radiant quartzite of UK.

    According to local belief Lord Vishnu is supposed to have put his first foot down at a place called Sreevari padalu, the divine foot prints which is the highest point of Tirumala hills, the second step at the location of the arch. Thereafter, the next step is stated to have been placed where his idol is now worshipped in the temple at Tirumala.

    All the six locations can be visited in under three hours. You start from – Srivari Padalu. Then return back to Silathoranam. The Rock garden and Chakra Theertham is located within the same complex. From here you go straight to Papavinasanam. On way back you can visit Akash ganga and stop for some time on the Gogarbham dam bridge. You will be travelling a maximum distance of 25 kms.

    This attraction is unique as it has both Mother Goddess Anjani Devi and Son God Hanuman at the same place. It has water flowing near the temple and down. The water is so pure and tastes so good. Good place, need to walk down about 500 meters. Has lots of stalls for some attractive accessories shopping and lots of stalls to have snacks tea chats ...
    Don't miss this. From Tirumala you get private cars or jeeps for Rs.600 for 3 place attraction visit in about 2 hours time.

    Chandragiri Fort is situated just on the roadside. So there is no problem to access the Fort. Near the entrance, there is a ticket booth for buying tickets to enter. After entering, you come to a beautiful area to walk around. The Palace has been turned into a museum where many artifacts are on display. We did not see much crowd. On the whole, your time will be well spent.

    This place just about 20 mins from Tirumala Lord Venkateshwara Temple by any transport is known for taking bath in the sacred water which known for destruction of Sin. This is the belief here. Goddess Gangadevi has a temple here. Be careful of the monkeys sitting here as they snatch away your things if you tease them.
