Tirupathi is a temple town in Chittoor District in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is located at the foot hills of Tirumalai.

The town owes its existence to the sacred temple situated on the Tirumala Hills. Tirumala is the abode of Lord Venkateshwara, one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu, located atop Seshachala hills often called as "Yaelu Malai" or "Yaedu Kondalu" (seven hills). The temple of Lord Venkateshwara is the richest Hindu temple and the second most visited religious center in the world following the Vatican. The town is also home to Sri Venkateswara University, one of the three major universities in Andhra Pradesh. Although, Tirupati has been a city for many years, the Andhra Pradesh state government had not recognized it officially until recently. Effective from March 2, 2007, the city is a municipal corporation not a municipality.

It is in
Chittoor District of
Andhra Pradesh...

There is a temple on the seven hills
(Tirumala...12 kms from Tirupathi)
where the famous temple of
Sri Venkateswara Swamy (Balaji)
had come into being several hundred
years ago.

Those who have inherent faith
in God
go and fulfil their vows there.
A few of the vows are
The jobless who get his job, puts
his first salary in the hundi (a box meant for donations to God)
Those who have illnesses,
tonsure their head on their becoming normal
The politicians who win or earn money...
put in hundi the percentage they promised the God...
The students who pass with distinction
tonsure their head....
The barren woman who confine...
tonsure her head....

All said and done, if you see the
spate of devotees visiting which
the temple authorities are unable
to control year after year,
HE IS DEFINITELY A POWERFUL
GOD FOR HUMANS.
