Sri Govindaswamy Temple   India 2012              
Return to the main 2012 pictures page                       Back to main India pictures page         
The temple is in the centre of Tirupati not far from the rail station. Pilgrims visiting the Sri Venkateshwara temple at Tirumula in the hills call in here on their way or the way back. I used to go there whenever I went into town, usually on way from from Sindhuri Park Hotel which is by the temple tank where the god is taken during the annual festival there.

The main route into temple which is beyond the high gopuram; this is lined with shops selling religious items and also 'fairground' toys.
