Why Is Tirupati Famous For Lord Vishnu’s Temple?

A One day Tirupati tour package from Chennai consists of lunch, breakfast, prasadham, and special darshan tickets which are offered by our Balaji Travels at affordable prices. Tirupati is one of the most famous religious places in India where the sanctuary of Lord Vishnu is located. The temple is known as Tirumala Tirupati where Lord Vishnu takes the epitome of Lord Venkateshwara. Venkatadri is one of the seven significant hills in Tirupati where the temple is situated. Devotees call Lord Vishnu as Govinda, Balaji, and Srinivasa.

Tirupati is visited by an enormous number of devotees(1.5lakh) every day and this gets increased on special occasions like Diwali which means Tirupati has been visited by almost 4 to 5 crore worshippers annually. 


Most devotees choose a wide variety of Chennai to Tirupati Car Packages to gain peacefulness at the Tirupati temple. It is believed that Lord Kubera has offered a huge amount to Lord Venkateshwara after his wedding with Padmavathi. So, Lord Vishnu’s debt is paid back by his devotees by the deposition of money in the hundi at the sanctuary of Tirupati.

History Of The Temple:

Tirupati was under the rule of the Vijayanagara emperor which is how the temple grew famous. The worshippers believe that the temple received valuable stones and gold from the rulers. The temple was gold-plated by the order of king Krishnadevaraya and Raghoji Bonsle started administering the system and took care of the management a few years later. 

Popular Hills:

There are seven popular hills called Saptagiri in Tirupati where Vishnu was given the name from these hills. The names of the hills include Garudadri, Neeladri, Narayanadri, Anjadri, Vrushabadri, and Venkatadri.

The Reason For Tonsuring Hair At Tirupati:

People believe that Lord Vishnu’s head became tonsured when a shepherd had hit him. So, Neela Devi offered her hair when she saw that Lord Vishnu had tonsured his hair. People believe that Neela Devi receives the hair happily which is offered by Lord Venkateshwara’s worshippers.

Thus, most people book rental cars on Tirupati Travel Packages from Chennai to have an entertaining journey with security.
