Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple, BR Hills

While on a trip to BR Hills, travellers must visit Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple that lies on the top of the hill range. The Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple is dedicated to Lord Venkatesha. Out of all the temples in India devoted to Lord Ranganatha, this is the only pilgrimage site where the idol of the deity is in standing position.

Apart from the statue of prime deity, this temple enshrines the idol of Ranganayaki, the Lord's spouse. A special pooja is organised at this temple every Friday. Bilgiri Rangaswamy Temple is of great importance to Srivaishnavites as local tribes from this region offer skin slippers (1 foot and 9 inches long) to Lord Ranganatha once in two years. This pilgrimage site attracts thousands of devotees from all parts of the country during the popular Car Festival (Ratha Festival) that takes place during 'Vaishakha' in April.
