An evening at magnificent Govinda rajula temple, abundance of spiritual and mental peace.

February 2020 · 3 min read · Tirupati

This is the ending part of my trip to triumala tirupathi. We have still alot of time remained after coming out from the alivelu manga temple.

Since our return train is at night 10:40 pm , we are watching out for any other sites to visit. I called my mom about giving updates of my trip, she asked whether I have been to the Govinda rajula Temple. I said "no" and decided to visit it as it is near to railway station. Mean while we had a great lunch.

It's just away less than 600 meters. You can walk in less than 10 minutes to the temple enjoying the city.

Here the electronic devices are not allowed in to the temple, o the temple administration setup a free locker facility. You can deposit your footwear,laguagge and camera& mobile devices safely.

Govinda rajula temple was the main point in tirupathi as the whole city is built around it. The legend goes as the Saint from Tamil Nadu Ramanjuncharya built this and bought the Govinda rajula idol from the Tamil Nadu to escape some punishment from the king in that region.

The temple is said to be build in 12th century and it has sub shrines inside the complex.

Here the the diety Lord Vishnu appears in sleeping position facing the east.

The top of entrance called as gopuram has seven stairs each one having the description of scenes from Ramayana.

Unusually the statue is very large and you could feel the vibes around the area inside. I was thrilled to see. We wen in the evening where the temple was just reopened after closing for naivedyam offering to the lord.

Since it was evening, the area was with less people. I have completed my Darshan of lord and sat some time in corridor of the temple. I captured some shots about the scenario there.

The temple priest gave us handful of lemon rice made with ghee and almonds in a cup made of leaves. It was very nice and tasteful. That's a great experience to sit there among the people on ground and watching them. There are children who are playing and adults immersed in chanting the lord's name.
