Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

Himavad Gopalaswamy

Diety : Venugopala Swamy

Time peroid of the Temple : said to be installed in Dwaparayuga

Location : 90kms from Mysore on Bandipur National park road. Have to take interior jungle route from Gundulpet.

Nearest : Mysore for lodging, Bandipur Jungle resorts is an option. Food moderate in Gundulpet. Better to carry food packing and water

City : Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta

Ideal Time : Any season. The forest is full of wild animals and lots of Elephants. By evening, all have to return back.

Topology : Thick forest, dangerous road curves and only strong drivers and vehicles can do the travel. The travel is up the hill, and is very steap and uncondition road and turns. Elephants are usually encountered, apart from bears and Leapords. No food or any help or aid is available on the top of the hill. Only help is the checkpost on the foot hills.

Services : one or two buses from mysore go to the temple. But its better to go in private vehicles with good capacity engine.

History: The temple is said to be installed by Sage Agastya. Its still believed, he comes and offers pooja every night. Their is a lake nearby the temple, some 2 kms jungle treak. Its said Agastya poured his energy into the lake in such a way that, once a crow had a bath in that lake and became a beautiful swan. And seeing so, Agastya made all the crows disappear from that area. Even today we cant find any crows on the hills.

Any couples seeking children can take bath in this lake to remove all the sins blocking them from having a child.

The entry to the hill is opened only from 7am. Some 25yrs back, people use to go their by 5 or 6 AM. Their one could see a miracle every day. The only place in india after the himalayas one can find snow covering the gopuram of the temple. Not so thick but visible, and also interior of the garbhagruha ceiling. The first cold breez from the arabian sea touches the temple kalasham. So its always appear wet.

Now a days, due to climate changes we can see only a wet gopuram and wet inner walls of the temple.

The lord their Venugopala looks very beautiful as he always appears young and energetic.

One has to carry all his need up the hill as their is noting u can get on the top expect the prasadam and ashirvadam of the archakas. People usually bring food offerings in the early morning, offer it to lord and distribute it to the devotees. One can take flowers and fruits for the lord.
