Tirupati is a temple town in Chittoor District in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is located at the foot hills of Tirumala.

The town owes its existence to the sacred temple situated on the Tirumala Hills. Tirumala is the abode of Lord Venkateshwara, one of the Avatars of Lord Vishnu, located atop Seshachala hills often called as "Yaedu Kondalu" (seven hills). The temple of Lord Venkateshwara was built by Telugu Kings to represent Telugu culture. It is the richest and most visited temple (of any faith) in the world[1]. The town is also home to Sri Venkateswara University, one of the three major universities in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Although Tirupati has been a city for many years, the Andhra Pradesh state government had not recognized it officially until recently.

Sri Kodandarama Swami Temple is situated in the middle of Tirupati Town, within a distance of about a kilometre from the Tirupati railway station. This is in good state of preservation.

It is said that the Linga was worshipped by a spider, by spinning a web over it, a snake by placing gem upon the Linga and an Elephant by washing the Linga with water from its trunk and attain Mukti. Hence this place is called Srikalahasthi. The name of the place comes from three animals, Sri(spider), Kala(snake) and hasti(elephant) who worshipped Shiva and gained salvation here. A statue that shows all three animals is situated in the main shrine. The Skanda Purana, Shiva Purana, and Linga Purnas mention about Srikalahasti.

It is believed that Kannappa(also called as Bhakta kannappa), a tribal devotee has worshipped Siva at Srikalahasti.
