Biligiri Ramaswamy Temple

The Bilgiriranga Hills are very famous for the presence of this particular temple of Lord Venkatesha situated on the highest peak of the range, on the 'white hill' which incidentally gives it its name. The local people know this particular deity by the name 'biligiriranga' which is shown to be in a standing position. In the month of April, many pilgrims come from far to visit this temple in huge numbers to attend the Ratha or the Car Festival. The local tribe, present the Ranganathaswamy with a huge slipper, every two years measuring to 1ft.9 inch made up of skin. This unusual feature is also one of the main reasons as to why tourists love visiting this temple. The temple is of great importance to ShriVaishnavites and special rituals are performed on Fridays. The temple is also a place one can find calm and peace, since the full and lively forests at all sides make a heave image in a tourist's mind, leaving a long lasting imprint.
