Tirupati Govindarajaswamy temple

I and my uncle left for tirupati to attend kalyanotsavam seva. we had booked our seva tickets and accomodation tickets online at http://www.ttdsevaonline.com/ . we left by Mysore-Tirupati express from bangalore and reached tirupati at 5:54am next day. We took  room for 1hr in the nearby lodge to refresh ourself and the charges were nominal 100 for 1hr. We left to Govindarajapatnam which is very close to the tirupati railway station. Saint Ramanujacharya consecrated the temple in 1130 AD.
