Tirupati Temple in Andhra Pradesh is one of the most famous temples in the country. Here offerings worth crores of rupees are made to Lord Venkateswara Swamy. A Hyderabad-based businessman on Monday presented 'Surya Katari', a gold sword crafted at a cost of one crore, to Lord Venkateswara Swamy's temple. A Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) official said, "Hyderabad-based businessman MS Prasad has presented a Surya Katari (sword) to Venkateswara Swamy in Tirumala." He handed over his offerings to AV Dharma Reddy, an additional executive officer inside the temple premises at Ranganayakula Mandapam. According to TTD officials, the sword weighs five kg which is made from two kg gold and three kg silver.
Sri Venkateswara Temple is built on the Tirumala hills located in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh. It is a famous Hindu pilgrimage site. This temple was built many centuries ago which is a wonderful example of architecture and craftsmanship. The Hoysala and Vijayanagara kings are said to have contributed significantly to the construction of the temple financially.
