ABOUT TIRUPATI...


Tirupati is a city in Chittoor district of the Andhra Pradesh state. Tirupati is considered one of the holiest Hindu pilgrimage sites because of Tirumala Venkateswara Temple, besides other historical temples. The Temple is dedicated to Lord Sri Venkateswara, who is appeared here to save mankind from trials and troubles of Kali Yuga.

Among the galaxy of temples in our country, the hill shrine of Tirumala is accredited as being the most visited temple in India and also in the world as a whole. Located on the picturesque Seshachalam Hill Ranges, this temple occupies a unique place in our great land of holy shrines. It is the richest temple in the world in terms of donations received and wealth. The temple is visited by about 50,000 to 100,000 pilgrims daily. The world-famous "Tirupati Laddu" is given at Tirumala Temple as prasadam.

Puranas describes that, Sri Maha Lakshmi was furious over Bhrigu for kicking the bosom of the Lord. She left Vishnu in a fury and went on to stay at Kolhapur. Unable to bear the solitude after Sri Maha Lakshmi’s departure, Vishnu left Vaikuntam in search of her and wandered across the forests and hills. Later Lord Sri Venkateswara, also known as Srinivasa, Balaji, and Veṅkaṭachalapati, made Tirumala as His abode.

We also have a beautiful ISKCON temple at the foothills of Tirumala.

As an annual regular feature of ISKCON Youth Services, the next IYS yatra will be going to Sri Tirumala Tirupati Dham. More than 600 boys are expected to benefit from this unique opportunity & get innumerable unforgettable experiences of the beautiful dham. Inviting you to join in too...
