Mundan at Chikka Tirupathi

Finally after tossing around between Tirupati, Kolkata or any salon in Bangalore itself, ended up selecting Chikka Tirupati as the destination for Param's Mundan.

Chikka Tirupathi is hardly 20 km away from Sarjapur-ORR junction, so it was less painful on travel. There was nothing like crowd, hardly couple of hundred people were around, while for Mundan, barely 8 to 10 people. Param got priority in the queue, all thanks to his new Maama.

Infact before head shave started - looking at a place, I had a double mind and was not so confident of getting his head shave done here. But to our surprise, barber was very careful, Param did not had even a single cut.

Overall, it turned out to be good decision. Only down side for us was not having his own Maama around.

About to start on the Sunday morning

    1. Hi Dhivya,

      You do not need prior booking for pooja or headhave. They officially charge Rs 10 for token, we gave Rs 300 for the tip which he never asked. They put chandan/oil post mundan, which is best. However, as a precaution, we carried dettol/turmeric powder just in case if there is any cut. Place is not crowded and the barber who was doing headshave was very careful while doing it for kid.

      Good luck.

  3. Hello Vijay,
    I am planning to take my 11 month old son for mundan at Chikka Tirupathi.
    Do you have number of any contact person there?
    My problem is that I need to get mundan done between 8:30 to 9:15 am :).
    Hence I want to confirm with pujari in advance about his and barber's availability.

    1. Hi, sadly I did not note the number. However it is not crowded, so I am sure if you with one hour in hand you can manage easily. Even we had to go by muhurat time, so I understand what you are saying.

      Good luck.
