Today was a holy saturday. Initially I had a plan only to visit Thirumalagiri temple in JP Nagar. So I started in the evening around 5 PM. I got a bus to Roopena Agrahara and from there switched to a Banashankari bound bus. I got down near JP Nagar. Searching for the route for Thirumalagiri spotted another temple — Sri Kalyana Venkateswara temple in JP Nagar Phase 1. They also gave green banana fruit as prasadam here. After having darshan here walked down the street towards Thirumalagiri.
There was a bit of crowd and had darshan of the Lord after 6.30 PM Maha Arathi. In Tirupathi we can not stand near sanctum sanctorum for long.. That gap was fulfiled here. I was able to stand for a long time having a divine glimpse of the Lord. The Hanuman was having vadamala. There was some vada and puliyogare distribution too. The Ganapathy in this temple is beautiful. The Yoganarasimha sannidhi was simply majestic.
After completing the darshan started back to signal to catch the bus towards Madiwala and then back home.
