Srikalahasti Tourism

Srikalahasti is referred to as the 'Kailash of South' and rightly so because it does have all the characteristics of being the Kailash down south. The main temple, the Srikalahastisvara Temple is pristine white and also has a beautiful hill alongside. To add to it, a small river named Swarna Mukhi flows through the city, quite analogous to the mighty Ganga. The place seems to be full of devotees, of Lord Vishnu and Shiv especially. This makes the atmosphere quite spiritual and religious. To soak oneself into the divinity of God and to render his/her offerings this is one best places to be at.

Not just temples, the place also has quite a few natural blessings as well in the form of lush hills and a beautiful little waterfall. Some of the temples are located on the top of hills which requires a bit of hiking as well, providing quite a wonderful experience.
