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.
