  1. It's beautiful place as in the picture.

    What would be the distance from New Delhi to Tirumala temple?

  2. I would like to visit the Temple from Delhi what would be the cost and distance for 4 people?

    1. Hi Rajeev,

      Couple of options, you can fly from New Delhi to Tirupathi mostly via Hyderabad or Bengaluru (tkt prices range from 10k-15k per person)
      You can fly to either Bengaluru or Chennai & then take a train/bus to Tirupathi (Cost will ne around 5k per person) You could visit many other places around Bengaluru to Chennai if you consider this option.
