Katching Kapilesvarasvami

In Tirupati, there are a couple of Hindu temples worth seeing, each with its own unique features. For Kapilesvarasvami, the peaceful setting on the side of a mountain with a waterfall flowing directly into a serene pool is the main attraction.

The architecture reflects the bucolic setting. A small gopuram. The pool is busy, mostly with people cleansing themselves in the holy water.

Or doing a little laundry. Clean everything, right? The laundry, set to dry outside the temple entrance.
