Default Suggestion needed for a day stay at Kalahasti.

Hi all,
I'm visiting Kalahasti this weekend and would like to know any good hotels to stay for a day? Is temple lodging available in Kalahasti? if yes, is online booking available. Please advice.

Thanks,
Ramki.

Hi rkg,
Thanks for your suggestion. But i'm going by KSRTC direct bus to Kalahasti. therefore i want to stay in Kalahasti itself. Suggest me some good hotels and near by places if we finish the pooja soon. My return journey is also booked.

Your best bet is to look for accommodation with APTDC's hotel at Kalahasti.

It still shows up under the 'New Projects' list though, don't know if it is ready.

AFAIK, There is no descent places to stay @ Kalahasti. Buses are available a plenty to tirupati, and will take you an hour only. Better stay at Tirupati. If u are still adamant @ Kalahasti, and not able to locate any place urself, do give me a call @ 9704446660 I'll try to find out.

There are lots of hotels at Srikalahasti very close to the temple. Decent enough if you only want to spend the day. Passed through this town on Saturday. Sorry I don't remember any names though.

Would suggest a hotel nearby the temple. Guess we stayed at one that cost us 200or 300 per day.

Dont buy stuffs from vendors inside temple. The pooja items are sold by temple people at their counter. Felt funny they way they had AC as well as non-ac places to do the pooja. AC version costs 800or 1000 Rs and you do "pooja" in an AC room while the rest does it inside the temple on its floor.

I lost count of the Siva lingas I saw.

I Guess most Big temples under TTD has A/c Shrines . Still dunno whether its a good thing or bad thing.May be thats their version of professionalism.
