  • Not well organized..Need more planning on long weekends..Have to wait longer in queue which is expected. They should have chairs or benches for old people and pregnant women's or they should have priority in the queue. Not enough sign boards.. Parking we as enough and they do have shuttles from additional parking spots. These review is to improve service not meant to scrutinize. It's divine and holy place had good dharsan.
  • One of the best temples I've visited in the US .An absolute serene place with ample space around to sit and soak in the divine feeling. The staff are very helpful and courteous. There is sufficient parking available.
  • Wonderful temple. Wheelchair accessible even though there are lots of stairs, they have made good arrangement. Cafeteria has Food has nominal cost
  • Best place to visit for a Hindu temple. Well maintained and the food is really delicious and costs just about $2 for a sumptious meal. Tamarind rice , upma , farsan and curd rice are generally the options available frequently.
  • You will feel same Tirupathi feel... Divine and long..

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
