" You are right, you have imagined well, and rightly too. This soulfully worshipped Govindarajaswamy is deemed the elder brother of Balaji according legends and popular belief. Hoe is seen in reclining posture over Adisesha, his coach. Like Ranganatha Swamy, he is attended on by Sridevi and Bhudevi at feet and Brahma sitting on lotus sprouting from the navel of the Lord. The imposing granite icon is a sculptural marvel making the viewers rivet their attention on him for minutes, if allowed. Alas! like in the Tirumala temple the pushing and dragging out by the staff repeats. Heavy crowds in long queues are seen from morning to night. Here are some hoary shrines, dedicated to SriKrishna, Andal, Varadarajaswamy Pundarikavalli, Chakrathalwar, and paying homage in an indispensable necessity. And with that alone the arc of temple darsan turns out a circle. Let us move swift to the Kodandaramaswamy temple, as it is getting late now.

This Kodandaramaswamy Shrine is the more frequented temple of the Tirupathi citizens than the Govindarajaswamy shrine. Its serene environs and spacious court yards with ten-foot high masterly sculptured vigrahas have a magnetic pull on the locals, who visit both in mornings and evenings. It enjoys T.T.D's efficient administration and- so major periodical festivals are celebrated with an unparalled favour akin to Tirumala. Well, with these, the most visit - worthy sacred places adorning both religious and tourist maps of Tirupathi - Tirumala reach the consummation point and only three items Srinivasa Mangapuram temple, Agastheeswara Temple and Chandragiri fort remain to be seen."

" No Mr. Moorthy as we have been on feet since 2 a.m., awakened for Suprabhat darsan, we feel terribly tired. And as we are leaving tomorrow morning tell us about them in brief before we go there, so that we will complete in minutes.'
