    I would like to know about any tour packages for my parents who would like to go to Tirupati. As they will be on their own, I want to make sure everything is organized for them from pickups to hotel stays.

    Hello, @Priyani, welcome to the forum!

    Tirupati-Tour.

    Overview

    The Tirupati Temple goes by many names like Tirupati Balaji Temple, Sri Venkateswara Temple and even Tirumala Temple. The temple is believed to have been built by King Thondaiman of the Thondaimandalam kingdom during the 8th century. Thereafter, rulers of other dynasties contributed to the expansion of the temple, including the Pallavas, the Cholas, the Pandyas and the Vijayanagars. Presently, the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams manages the temple and its wealth which are all donated by devoted pilgrims. Darshan though can take a few hours since over 50,000 pilgrims visit the temple on a daily basis. Fortunately, there are some tour agencies offering all-inclusive packages that can make your pilgrimage more comfortable and satisfying.

    Conclusion

    These are all the packages for Chennai to Tirupati that includes accommodation, transportation and breakfast.
