Tirupati Tirumala lies in the Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh and is widely regarded as the state’s spiritual centre. Tirupati’s natural beauty—its temples, hills, valleys, mountains, beaches, and rivers—draws in millions of people annually.
Tirupati is still a popular destination for both domestic and foreign visitors to the state of Andhra Pradesh. Located at the base of the Seshachalam range, Tirupati is home to a National Park that shares its name with the city’s most well-known landmark: the Temple of the Lord Balaji. The park is home to some of the world’s most impressive plant and animal life. The national parks provide vital habitat for numerous bird species in peril, including the yellow-throated bulbul, oriental white-backed vulture, grey-fronted green pigeon, and others. Rare species including red sanders, sandalwood, and hundreds of others are among the 1500 plant species that call it home.
The region’s arts and crafts are renowned for their intricate designs. Visitors have long been interested in learning more about the temples’ surrounding architecture. Many artefacts honouring Hindu deities and other cultural artefacts discovered at various locations are on show at the museum’s archaeological hall.
