#1 of 7 in Things to do in Srikalahasti
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. Start your trip to Srikalahasti by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
