Srikalahasti
 

About 60-km from Tirupati, Srikalahasti is situated on the banks of the Swarnamukhi river at the foot of the Kailasagiri hills. This 16th century town is famous for its 'Kalahasthisvara Temple', one of  the most sacred Shiva shrine and the production of 'Kalamkari' paintings. The temple is particularly revered for the 'Siva lingam' in white stone. The shrine of 'Vayu Deva' the Wind God is the only one of its kind in India.

'Kalamkaris' are brightly coloured hand painted textiles used as Temple decoration and wall hangings.
