    Any Iskcon on earth is known for its divinity and peaceful ambience.. parking might be an issue. Try cow ghee laddu which is very good! It also has contemporary art on walls which are amazing!

Where to stay in Tirupati

With millions of pilgrims visiting Tirupati each year, the city offers a large variety of places to stay, but can reach bursting point during festival times. An independent Hindu trust provides free accommodation for pilgrims, with a range of private accommodations also catering primarily to religious visitors. With a wide range of options to meet different budgetary needs, the majority of the city's hotels--mostly two- or three-star establishments--cluster around the center close to the shrine. A handful low-budget lodges, guesthouses, and hostels are scattered around the fringes of the city. Make sure to reserve your room well in advance if visiting during pilgrimage season.
