CHIKKA TIRUPATHI

Chikka Tirupati is located in Malur taluk of Kolar district and it is 40KMs from Bangalore.. The main attraction of Chikka Tirupati is Sri Prasanna Venkateshwara temple dedicated to lord Vishnu. The lord is standing with his consort Sri Devi and Bhoo Devi. The right hand is in Varada hasta (the boon granting hand)  and there are no separate sanidhi for Goddess Padmavati. The second unique feature is during the Rathotsava a seventy-feet tall wooden chariot is made every year.
It's just a half a day's trip from Bangalore...... the route Marthahalli to Varthur....... to Sarjapur and the 13 kms fro there on a good road.....
The temple ambiance is excellent.... people in large groups come there to celebrate weddings in the presence of Lord Sri Prasanna Venkatramana Swamy.......and receive blessings...... for happy marriage.....
The atmosphere is festive ....... lots of road side shops like Jaatre.......The temple run on a low profile....
Few services.......as shown in the photo.......
