Sri Kalahasti
Sri Kalahasti - Temple View

This famous Saivite temple in Kalahasti, 38 km from Tirupati, is one of the Panchabhoota Kshetras. Located on the banks of river Swarnamukhi, Sri Kalahasti Temple is one of the most ancient temples in South India. Lord Siva is worshipped here in the form of Vayu Linga (one of the elements air). The legend says that Sri (spider), Kala (cobra) and Hasti (elephant) worshipped Lord Siva here and attained Moksha. Hence this place is known as Srikalahasti. Kannappa Nayanar (a tribal hunter) attained salvation in this place by offering his eyes to this Lord.

Sri Kalahasti Temple is also famous for performing Sarpadosha (RahuKetu) Nivaarana Pooja. The fee is Ps. 150/- inclusive of Pooja material. Many pilgrims perform this pooja here.

Sri Gnana Prasoonambika is the consort of the Lord and abhishekams are also performed for her as for Sri Kalahasteeswara.

Patala Ganapati is a small underground temple located in the same complex. Pilgrims should make it a point to visit this interesting place. One has to bow down carefully to worship this Ganapati 20 feet below on a very narrow staircase.

Kannappa Temple is on a hillock adjacent to the temple from where we can view the temple town of Sri Kalahasti.
