Pictures Of Sri Kalahasti

I was going through my CD collections and i found some pictures Of Sri Kalahasti Temple Town, which i took three years ago and thought of sharing them.

Sri Kalahasti temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is one of the five major Shiva temples. It is situated on the banks of the river Swarnamukhi and it is 36 kms from Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India. Initial structure was built in the 5th century and later it was extended in the 12th century. Entire temple is carved out of the side of a huge stone hill and it is recognized for it's architectural brilliance. Unfortunately, photography is prohibited inside the temple.

This is one of the gopurams(entrance towers)

This elephant at the entrance of the temple gives blessings to devotees in exchange for coins.

This is the garden near the temple

I took these pictures with Sony Ericsson’s K750i, therefore clarity isn’t good.

Thanks Jeevan. Architecture is stunning considering that it was built many hundreds of years ago.
