Chennai to Tirupati is the most popular route among tourists as a religious destination famous for the Tirumala Venkateswara temple. Tirupati is home to unique geological wonder that you shouldn’t miss out on. The Silathoranam is a natural arch formed out of rocks and is located at the Tirumala hills. The natural rock formation is one of the only three of its kind in the entire world and is an important archaeological landmark.
"The God lives in you, There’s a little universe and little temple in yourself, when you do Naam smaran or any form of bhakti whole heartedly, The God responds to you."
The very name Tirupati is enough to evoke the spiritual feelings and while the name ‘God’s Abode’ indeed does justice to the place. The primary attraction of Tirupati is, of course, the Sri Venkateshwara Temple, which is the highlight of the town. The non-stop chanting of ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’, the pilgrim rush, the heavy security surrounding the entire area and the awe-inspiring 8 feet tall idol of Lord Venkateshwara everything about the Sri Venkateshwara temple is majestic and overwhelming.
