About Pushpagiri (Religious Place)

voted as clean

Pushpagiri is regarded as a sacred region of the state due to the presence of many temples and places of pilgrimage. The site is also known by the name of Second Hampi and supports the faith among the two groups of the Hindu religion, the Saivas and the Vaishnavas. Among their own group, the Saivas called this site Madhya Kailasam while the Vaishnavas titled it as Madhya Ahobilam.

Pushpagiri is the only region in the state of Andhra Pradesh to have the holy peetham of Sankaracharya. Out of all the temples in Pushpagiri, Chennakesava Swamy Temple is the largest and is visited by devotees as well as tourists.

"There's a telescope on the mountain"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 9, 2015
It is good trekking place about 8 kms from Cuddapah bus stand. We can see this small mountain which is maintained by government of India. No entry fee, one telescope is present at the top of mountain to view city. I advise travellers to visit this place as soon as possible.
