Pilgrimage Tourism Andhra Pradesh

Andhra Pradesh, with its exquisite temples and ancient shrines, is counted among the top pilgrimage destinations in India. On an Andhra Pradesh pilgrimage tour, tourists can visit the sacred ‘Mallikarjuna Temple’ in Srisailam and pay their obeisance to one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Shiva, admire the architectural brilliance of the stunning mural-adorned edifice of the ‘Lepakshi Temple’ in Anantpur, or just soak in the mystical aura of the ‘Kanaka Durga Temple’ at Vijayawada, where Goddess Durga is worshipped in her Mahishasurmardini avatar.

Apart from that, pilgrimage tourism in Andhra Pradesh should also involve a visit to the holy abode of Lord Shri Venkateswara Swamy, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu who is believed to have been residing in the hallowed sanctuary of “Tirumala Tirupati Balaji Temple” since Vedic times. Built in 300 AD by the Tamil King, Thondaimaan, it is one of the world’s richest shrines, which receives a donation of over 300 crore every year from millions and millions of devotees.
