CHITTOOR - SIVAALAYAM

The district of Chittoor, one of the premier districts of Rayalaseema, an integral part of the state of Andhra Pradesh claims a unique honour for its special features, numbering more than one. It is this district that has the honour of possessing the lone summer resort of the state - the Horsley Hills; the seat of Balaji, the Lord of Seven Hills and the the, six continents, rather of the three worlds; and the seat of Besant Theosophical College etc. The laurels it has brought to the state are numerous and their glory is conspicuous.

The Chittoor town bearing the same name of the district, has many spiritual havens built for all the gods of Hindu pantheon, like Sri Rama temple, Murugan temple, Vinayaka temple, Siva temple and Sakti temples in Her multifarious manifestations. Around the town at short distances too there are very many shrines, like Kanipakkam Pillayarappa temple, Magileswara temple etc, that have been emitting Siva mahima for centuries now, to say the least. To crown as it were Tirumala, enshrining Balaji temple of interplanetary eminence lies at a short distance 60 km only. Of the many Aalayas, the temple built for Siva are many and are seen both in main streets and at its outskirts. Some of them are very old, but the agamic worship conducted is retaining its firm hold, and hence the attraction. Heavy rush is seen during the mornings and evenings.

All these lie in town itself and can be reached by autos, cycle rickshaws from the railway station or bus stand.
