Puttaparthi

Anantpur , Andhra Pradesh

Puttaparthi is a place which is considered to be the holy abode of the Sathya Sai Baba. A place that is visited by thousands of people every single year, this is a blend of religion and modernity like none that you might have seen. A tiny place in the state of Andhra Pradesh, today it has gained global acclaim for being a place of great religious significance. Puttaparthy even has its own airport which is generally closed in the summers every year. This remote village on the banks of the Chitravathi River is bounded by the scorched and wobbly hills. Though this tiny village does not offer any of the splendorous vistas of nature, it has acclaimed as a much desired tourist place of religious significance after the establishment of Prasanthi Nilayam, in 1950. When you come here you will be quite surprised to see everything that a metro city has to offer can be found in this tiny place. This is truly a very stunning place to be in. With an array of very sophisticated places as the part of this little hamlet, Puttaparthy should be visited by every person who wants to learn more about India. This was the place which was the abode of Sai Baba who was the living God for millions of his devotees. He was supposed to have restorative powers and had performed some miracles in his time. A drastic change of Puttaparthi from a remote hamlet to a most modern township presents a saga of wonderful transition. It is quite sure that a visit to Puttaparthi would be a treasure trove not only for the ardent devotees but also for a vagabond since this village towers all other religious destinations in every way.
