Sri Kalyana Venkateswaraswami Temple

This is a beautiiful temple and a seat for the Vaishnavite in the hill city of Tirumalai in the Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh. The temple is dedicated to Sri Venkatehswara, a form of Lord Vishnu who is said to have had appeared over here to save the people from the bad effect of Kaliyuga. The temple is thus also known as the kaliyuga Vaikuntham. The other names of the temple are Tirumala Temple, Tirupathi Temple and Tirupathi Balaji Temple. The Seshachalam Hills known for the presence of the seven heads of the huge snake named Adishesha is a place of natural beauty overlooking the temple. The temple itself lies on the seventh and last peak formed out of the head of the snake. The Pushkarini holy tank is also situated just on the side. The temple is in the Dravidian Architecture and is the richest temple in the whole world. This is mainly due to the amount of donations it recieves every year.
