Being a major pilgrimage spot at the foot of the Seshachalam hills, Tirupati tourism revolves around Hindu temples and vast nature reserves.
Sri Venkatesvara Museum and Sri Vari Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Sri Venkateswara Wildlife Sanctuary and Tumbhuru Teertham. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Tirumala Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple, see the interesting displays at Manigandan, and engage your brain at Regional Science Centre.
