Sri Kalahasteeswara Swami Temple, Srikalahasti

(240+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Gaze upon the impressive architecture of Sri Kalahasteeswara Swami Temple, a celebrated Shiva temple carved entirely into the side of a stone hill. With the first construction beginning in the 5th century, the structure enthralls as much with its long history as with its 36.5 m (120 ft) tower dominating the entrance. Prepare for crowds on your visit and expect to wait in line at this popular place of worship. The temple serves free food three times a day. Make sure your clothing covers you up before entering the sacred site. Plan your visit to Sri Kalahasteeswara Swami Temple and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Srikalahasti trip itinerary builder.
