    I am planning to go to Tirumala, sometime next year.
    It will be full family trip, means 5 adults and a small kid.

    Please provide the information you have on route from Bangalore. Also on accommodation front.

    Hi Ravi,

    Its been a while I visited TFI, was quite bizi being with my little Angel.

    Think you might have received the SMS about Route details & also attaching Route Map for your reference.


    Oh sorry did not notice......Instead of going to chikkabalapur you can reach KOLAR directly through OLD MADRAS road.

    From your palce BTM lyt - Sarjapur Rd - KR puram Hanging bridge - Hoskote - Kolar then you can follow the map

    the route i went was yelahanka-devanhalli-vijaypura-kolar-mulbagal-chitoor-tirupati.
    the road is good most places. kolar-mulbaglu 4 laning is going on
    the byepass road of chittor is bad. if it is off hours or weekend.. go thru chitoor.

    accomodation - our stay was booked. but i guess the best bet is online with ttd.

    Did the journey successfully, driving was best part.

    My observation -
    - Bangalore to Tirupati - Roads are in very good condition. Chittoor by-pass has bad roads for about 2 KM, but manageable.
    - The ghat section was pretty easy to drive. We were 5 adults and a kid, plus luggage full. I drove easily (mind you it was my first ghat section drive).
    - The facilities at Tirumala is bad. Its tough even to get hot water (for my kid).
    - Huge rush for darshan, 24 hrs. I would say avoid taking small kid for darshan.

    Have you tried checking the availability for Tirumala booking here. Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams
    Just register and check whether you get the bookings, you can also book the sevas online. Have used this before twice and totally satisfied with the rooms and sevas.

    At Tirupati you have Sreenivasam complex right opp the central bus stand. Theses are economical and very neat and clean complex with lots of rooms. the only negative is you cant book it online. Send a DD or arrive and check the room availability. You can also book a temple tour covering all the temples in and around tirupati from this complex. The bus starts at this complex. Contact details 0877-2264541 Accommodation at Tirupati
