Culture of anantapur

Mahashivratri is one of the major festivals in Anantapur that is celebrated with tremendous pomp and splendour. A grand fair is held in the Koteseswara Swamy temple in Kotappakonda where everything, ranging from sweets and other food items to toys, clothes, bangles and other accessories are sold by the locals. Devotees who come here for worshipping make a promise and then shave their heads in honour of the deities. \nDuring the same time, a five-day festival called the Kalyanotsavam of Sambhulingeswara is also held where people offer ornaments, cash, fruits, and cattle to God. Anantapur is the perfect city to enjoy traditional Telugu cuisine. Rice forms the staple diet of the locals. Also, a crepe-like dish called dosa and steamed rice cakes (idli) are famous delicacies of the region.
