Tirumala - world's most visited pilgrimage site.

Tirumala is the world's most visited pilgrimage site!

And is the only place in India where no one laughs at Morten's (lack of) hairstyle. Here it is in fact common to sacrifice your hair to the temple, so people thought that he was a godly man (then you get respect in India...). Despite this, we were not in line for Puja (since it would take all day), but contented ourselves with looking at the temple from the outside and on the flow of pilgrims from all over India. Not only men shaved their head, it was strange to see Indian women without the usual braid down their back.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:nature, temple, many people
