Post by praveen.bondalapati » Tue Oct 30, 2018 11:52 am

A devotional trip planned for trip planned for 4 days from my home town Gudivada (KRISHNA dist, Andhra pradesh)

Trip itenary:

1) Tirupati
2) Kanipakam
3) Vellore Golden temple
4) Kanchipuram
5) Kalahasti

Tirupati :
Started from home town on my Brezza to Tirupati via Chennai Highway, which touches Vijayawada and Nellore. Awesome 6 lane road where you can touch 140 Km/hr roads are awesome till Gudur . From Gudur we have to go on single lane road , roads are good but traffic bit heavy . From Gudur to tirupati it will be 100 km , we have booked a room in Vallabh sadan (Rooms are constructed by ISCKON temple) which is bit far from bustand (in Vidyanagar) .

We have reached room by 6 PM completed bath and started to Alivelu mangapuram (Padmavathi ammavari temple) & Srinivasa mangapuram, Temple will close by 8 PM (we thought it will open till 9 PM) and from 8 to 9 PM ekanta seva will be there where no one is allowed. So we have tocomplete darsanam before 8 PM. Compelted darsanam Darsanam at Alivelu mangapuram and started to Srinivasa mangapuram, but the temple was closed before we reach the main dwaram and we sat there for sometime and came back to our room.

Alivelu mangapuram & Srinivasa mangapuram will temples with good architecture where you will feel the totally devotional. Srinivasa mangapuram where you can see lord venkateswara very near which is not possible in the main temple .

Next day we have reached Tirumala and occupied the rooms and visited the god in afternoon as we have boked SUPADAM tickets which costs around 300. it took 3 hours to complete darshan. Later in the evening we have roamed around the temple and reached room .

Next day morning we went to Patala ganga and Jadala anjaneya swamy temple. Jadala anjaneya swamy temple is located in bit forest where we have to walk 1 KM where we have steps laid by government and the place is awesome with big tress. After completing we have started to Kanipakam, Kanipakam has ganesha temple which is very famous . After darshan we have started to Vellore to visit Golden temple , we have reached Vellore by evening and we have booked GOLDEN GATEWAY hotel which is very near to temple .

Vellore Golden temple is very famous where the temple is carved with GOLD plates and we have to see the beauty of temple in the evening .
