Tirupati and Puttaparty: Gateways to God

India has a lot to reveal to those who have zeal to explore it. Rich in its culture and traditions, its every state has a different value. Tirupati and Puttaparty are two places in India that are revered for their religious charisma in the Hindu culture. Both of these places are considered to be the gateways to the ultimate destiny.

History

The name of the city literally refers to the “Lord of Lakshmi”. Tirupati has a great infrastructure and is situated at the foothills of Tirumala. These Tirumala hills are the most ancient rock mountains in India and are the second oldest of the world’s. Tamil literature talks about these hills. It is also considered the abode of Venkateshwar (Vishnu) and the Kaliyug Vaikuntha. It is an important place for the Vaishavas.

Puttaparty is famously known because of the reason that it is the residence of Bhagwan Shri Satya Sai Baba. Otherwise Puttaparty was a mere village but now it has got national as well as International fame. It is situated on the southern-western part of the Andhra Pradesh. Puttaparty is a beautiful natural place enclosed by rocky and arid hills that border Karnataka.

It includes the seven famous peaks – Venkatadri, Garudadri, Neeladri, Seshadri, Anjanadri, Narayandri, and Vrishabhadri. You can enjoy the view of these peaks.
