Tirupati’s grandest attraction and the only destination for many travelers is the Venkateswara Temple
, patronized by even the kings of the past. It is located atop the hills of Tirumala in a mountain range that runs along southeast India and is considered one of the most ancient temples mentioned in Hindu text. Varahaswami Temple is another popular stop for those on a pilgrimage and cultural explorers. According to legend, Varahaswarmi owned the seven hills before giving them to Venkateswara as long as he too was worshipped. Outside the temples, there are holy waterfalls
and sacred rivers that can be visited as well. In between spiritual quests, trips to Chandragiri Fort, Kalyani Dam, and Kishna Mandir provide great insight into the city.
