KALAHASTI

The most important festival in this temple is that of Mahasivarathri which lasts for ten days in February and   March. The fifth day of the festival corresponds to Sivarathri proper, when the pilgrims bathe in the river and keep vigil all throughout the night, fasting throughout day and Night. Another big festival is on the third day in Sankranti "When the deity is taken in a procession round the hills which is a circuit of nearly twenty miles. There are in all eighty-five festivals in this temple in the year.

Kalahasti is thus an ancient place mentioned extensively in the Puranas. Its historical background runs to ages and famous mystic poets have sung it. It is only thirty miles by road from Tirupati and one can reach it easily by road from Gudur on the Madras-Vijayawada line. The temple is a famous and sacred one and attracts pilgrims and devotees by thousands even now.
