Moving from Nellore to Tirupathi in Andhra Pradesh, we reach Venkatagiri town about 50 Km from it. Venkatagiri is roughly a 3 hour journey away from Chennai and about 320 Km from Bengaluru. Being on the routes to so many important places, this town is naturally very well connected by rail and road.
This once upon a time village in the 17th century that later on was part of the Madras Presidency, is today a town whose 2001 census population puts it at close to 53,000 inhabitants with a literacy level of 67 % in a total area of roughly 23.5 Sq. Km.
