Devotional place. I liked it very much. I visited so many times
I loved this place. Well maintained, clean premises. Calm and peaceful ambience, an ideal place for meditation. Very good system. Temple is situated on the hill top. Natural beauty on the way as well as around the temple is very good. Unlike some parts of India, here is no interference of priests or pandas. One can very well worship of his own, however it is well disciplined. Nice place both for tourists and devotees.
Omm The divine place of srimanchalam temple is located on hill however it has good transport facility. You can get city bus and also private transport to temple. The temple is located on hill and you can enjoy the sight. This is called second thirupati. The temple is very old and made of stones you can see there. You will experience the great Indian architecture in the temple. It's a holy place and the most important thing I felt that inside the temple you can smell the sandal(chandan).
