|The temple town of Tirupathi in Chittor district of Andhra Pradesh owes its existence to the sacred temple of Lord Sree Venkateswara situated on the Tirumala hill, nestling among the seven hills in the Eastern Ghats, 26 km by Ghat road from Tirupathi. With a history that dates back to over twelve centuries, the temple is the jewel in the crown of ancient places of worship in Southern India.
The darshan of Lord Sree Balaji, the more the number of visits to Him the more one wants to see Him. The momentary satisfaction derived from the fleeting glimpse of the Lord intensifies the longing to see Him again and again.
It is believed that among the devotees the Lord brings relief to the afflicted, divine wisdom to the seeker, prosperity to the materialist and peace to the Jnaani. All these benefits flow spontaneously and automatically out of the boundless grace of the Lord.
