The temples of our country are not only sacred places of worship but also great centers of fairs and festivals, art and architecture, music; dance etc, the sculptural art of any temple reflects the contemporary religion of a particular period, when the temple was constructed. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, maintain 13 temples, known for their importance as religious and pilgrim centers, are also noted for their hoary past as revealed by the valuable inscriptions of different dynasties. The temples were famous for their magnificent gopuras, prakaras, mandapas and vimanams.

The sculptural art in T.T.D temples, reflect the upsurge of vaishnavism in its different facets.
