    Hello every one,

    I am a new member here although I have been a frequent visitor to this forum for the last few months but decided to register today as I have a few queries about my upcoming trip to Tirupathi Balaji.

    I will be going to Tirupati from Bangalore by bus and would like to spend a few days exploring tourist attractions in and around Tirupati as I have a few days to spare so I am looking for advise on what places would be worth going to at Tirupati apart from the Tirumala temple which is the main reason I am going there.

    I dont mind going to some more temples if they are of historical significance and I would be very interested in natural beauty rather than mane made things while I am there. Being from Bangalore I am looking to be away from crowded places for a few days.

    As you can see it is mostly temples or a little bit or wild life but Tirupati does have the potential to keep you busy for a week or even more.

    Hi! Welcome to the forum! Here's a few places that I can recommend that you visit in Tirupati:
    • Talakona Waterfalls. You said that you'd like to see natural sceneries instead of man made ones, so this will be perfect for you. You would need to trek for 20 kilometres before seeing the beauty of the falls. You can go swim in the water or just bask in the awesome view of the waterfalls which is about 270 feet.
    • Gurramkonda Fort. This is an ancient architectural wonder, almost 500 years old already. It was originally a mud and rock construction which was then fortified into a rock fort.
    • Silathoranam. A must see place because if its natural rock formations. It's a bit of a tourist spot though so expect to see a lot of tourists. However, I still recommend it if you like seeing natural formations.
    • Deer Park. Don't let the park's name mislead you, you can see a lot of animals in here aside from deers. But yes, the main attraction here is the deers.
    I hope this helps!
