But before you decide on renting one, here’s all you need to know about the world-famous pilgrimage town and why it’s gained all the acclaim.

Tourism Facts About Tirupati

Tirupati is situated in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh. The town is most renowned and highly visited by local and international tourists for its very famous Sri Venkateswara Temple of Lord Vishnu. The beauty of the temple lies in its positioning atop the Tirumala Hills. The town itself though lies at the foothills. Tirupati is often addressed as the “spiritual capital of Andhra Pradesh”.

Tourist Attractions in Tirupati

The holy town of Tirupati is loaded with temples and pilgrimage sites aplenty. But it also offers things galore to all other types of non-pilgrim tourists. Here’s a list of all you can cover during your Chennai to Tirupati trip.

  1. Temples – The entire Chittoor district is flooded with some magnanimous temples, besides the Tirumala temple, of course. All of them are a must visit on the Tirupati tour but the ones you wouldn’t want to miss include Govindaraja Swami Temple, Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple, Iskon, and Sri Kapileswaraswami Temple.

  2. Sightseeing – For all nature lovers, Silathoranam is a true paradise enveloped in natural beauty. Sprawling across acres of garden and bare rocks, the site attracts tourists to a hanging rock in the air. A must visit to unravel this mysterious gift of nature yourself. You’d also love Talakona Waterfalls, Akasa Ganga, and Kalyani Dam.

  3. Wildlife – Wildlife lovers are in for some pleasant surprise with a dedicated Deer Park in Kandaleru, along with Sri Venkateswara National Park that’s home to a large species of wild animals. 

  4. Shopping – Chandragiri is the perfect getaway for shoppers; Bazaar Street in this heritage town is flocked with handicrafts and cottage industry produce. You’ll find handmade pottery to handloom, home decors and plenty of other souvenirs to take back home to Chennai.

Chennai to Tirupati by a Self-Drive Rental Car

Now that you’ve made up your mind to explore this historic temple town of Tirupati, it’s time to explore your options. As mentioned earlier, travel by road from Chennai to Tirupati would possibly work out the best for a first-time traveller, considering the short distance and time taken.

Also, self-drive car rental options are fast gaining popularity among tourists, even more than hiring a private bus or mini traveller, for instance, which used to be widely preferred until a short while ago. The preference has clearly changed and there are several reasons listed out by frequent travellers for the same:

  • It’s time saving, considering that you don’t need to stop over at several stops as in traveling on a bus.
  • You are the sole authority to decide on the route you wish to take – long or short – depending on which you think is more enjoyable, safer, and convenient.
  • It guarantees privacy with your loved ones without the presence of the driver.
  • Stop, gaze at the natural beauty of a site, and click as many snaps as many times, without worrying about others waiting up for you for long.
  • It makes the whole road trip much more enjoyable, especially when you’re with family, friends, or loved ones, unlike with a group of strangers on a bus.
  • It gives you a chance to drive on your own, especially if you really love taking long drives by yourself.
