The gopuram over the entrance to the sanctuary
The gold roof of the sanctuary
Entrance to inner sanctuary beneath gopuram with the caged queue running along wall and gold dome inside
Happy pilgrims
A few exhausted pilgrims cooling off
A colourful subsidiary shrine
Before (or after?) visiting Sri Venkateshwara worshippers break coconuts to represent discarded sins (??)
Neatly smashed. When I did this in a village temple I damaged half the population with shrapnel
Buy your coconuts here
Photo sir - us, not nuts. No comment
The usual rows of stalls selling relevant religious stuff plus toys and other trivia
One white face
Newly shaven (Ayappa?) pilgrims
